In the News "This election won't hinge on technology issues. Just look at prevailing discussions this year at the national level: major candidates have sparred over Iran's nuclear ambitions, the role of government, inane comments on the female body, and to nobody's surprise, the economy. Despite that fact, many decisions will be taken up by the next US president and those in Congress that will affect the world of tech, and by consequence, the real lives of citizens and human beings around the world - from alternative energy, to the use of killer drones, the regulation of wireless spectrum, and policies that aim to control content on the internet. Your chance to vote is just around the corner. Here's what's at stake in tech this election, and how the major candidates could influence our future." Happy voting, American readers. Whatever you pick, please take at least a few minutes to consider that the implications of your choice do not end at the US border.

the power of the president is over-stated. over-hyped. but it is still a very important vote. a vote for and win by one side will cause laws to be made that are anti-abortion anti-women anti-gay anti-poor pro-rich. there are distinct real world differences between the two presidential candidates.

ps: imagine if the system wasn't broken and you could choose from more than 2 people. johnson and stein are good people with good ideas. there are more than 2 choices for president, but you can only choose from 2. how does that make any sense. broken
