Senator Ron Wyden
We've had a vibrant political conversation on this blog this weekend (almost 900 comments and they are still coming). There is no question that our government and our politicans are failing us, particulary around innovation and the way forward.
But there is at least one Senator who has been an unfailing protector of the Internet and the innovators. His name is Ron Wyden and I am a huge fan (and donator to him).
This week at Web2 in San Francisco, my friend John Heilemann interviewed Ron. It is a terrific interview and if you have some time (35 mins), you should watch it.
