SOTU. I’m not in the habit of covering politics here, but the President’s annual State of the Union speech is an important bellwether of a year of policy decisions. I listened intently to the hour-plus Trump speech for some indication of how his administration would propel Technology and Innovation forward in America. There was none. Trump spent at least 20 minutes on his favorite topic – immigration – aside from a mention of us using American rockets to send astronauts to space, there were zero references to tech. That is unfortunate.
