Comment Re:Are we confusing politics and commerce? (Score 1) 19

In many ways, there is no difference between politics and commerce. The government is well on its way to increasing technology regulations. If a regulation comes down that "for the good of the industry" we all have to conform to .NET, it would have a major impact on commerce. That's just a far-fetched example. As more minor regulations are handed down, minor negative impacts are experienced. Computer technolog has benefited greatly from limited government intervention. Don't mention computer/internet origin, I'm talking about where we have gone since then. I think the point the group is trying to get across is that we do not need more government regulation now or in the future. I think that is a wonderful message and more than worthy for actively supporting.
