Tech Policy “People to Watch”
by Devanshu Mehta
Ars Technica and Tech Policy Central are putting together a “Who’s Who: People to Watch” list of people who will make a difference in tech policy.
Finalists will not be chosen simply on the basis of popularity or notoriety but will be judged by the ambition of their goals, the strength of their ideas, and the likelihood that they will, in fact, make a difference.
Anyone who reads this blog knows who I would nominate: Lawrence Lessig. But also, Susan Crawford for her recent addition to the Obama FCC review team, Kevin Martin of the FCC, Tim Wu, Rep. Ed Markey of MA, many of the Harvard Berkman crew like Zittrain, some of the EFF folk, the FreePress folks, Public Knowledge an, of course, Barack Obama Yeah, it’s a long list.
