Mossberg and SLA’s Public Policy

What impressed me most about Walt Mossberg’s closing keynote was how aligned his views were with SLA’s public policy. I was pleasantly surprised, since I’d expected his speech to concentrate on new technology and gadgets. SLA staff must have briefed him before he went on stage because he clearly understood his audience and tailored his remarks to us. Plus, of course, his views on copyright, net neutrality, government’s involvement with information policy, and big telecom companies pretty much parallel most of the opinions held by SLA members.
