Can This Guy Regulate Tech?

The mood among telecom regulators worldwide is to reign in tech companies so that they optimally serve the public interest. How to do that? Check out this guy.

One answer is to get ideas from a US Congressman named Ko Kannon. He is filling a void in Washington, helping lawmakers consider what do about Facebook after CEO Zuckerberg’s hearing embarrassed lawmakers who didn’t even understand how facebook works. The most significant aspect of his views is that tech companies shouldn’t just lower costs or improve services to consumers. They should support community and economic development. He may be the key to “smart regulation” of ICTs in developing nations.
