State of the Union tonight

John Moe Jan 24, 2012

We’ll be following the President’s address just like everyone else tonight and seeing if he gives many clues to technology issues and where the administration may be headed.

In particular:

– Will Obama say anything about the failure of SOPA/PIPA, either in opposition to the bills or in support of future bills that would please copyright holders? The bipartisan support and bipartisan opposition of the bills has been noteworthy, curious to see where that would fit in such a speech.

– Will he say anything about the increased use of drone aircraft in Afghanistan? How about in the United States?

– If there is talk of creating new jobs, and you just KNOW there will be talk of creating new jobs, how realistic are plans/hopes for the tech sector to create those jobs?
