Very Very disappointing to me.

TechVoice is a non profit organization that is working on Capital Hill representing Small Businesses in the IT Industry.

Virtually every one of you guys fall into the category of Small Business in the IT Industry.

These guys are working for you. Free of charge.

I communicated with The Force Field and TechVoice. If the two get together for a pod cast,,,or whatever it appears to be a win win situation.

After a month, it appears The Force Field has little or no interest.

I guess I do not understand things, but as I said "Very Very disappointing"

Sorry Tom, I have TechVoice on the radar. I have been very preoccupied and will have the show on a short haitus while I get caught up. As soon as I get the site redone I can contact them for an interview. It is on my agenda in Trello.

Appears they support several Bills that I cannot support. I think they need to define where they stand on these Bills and what changes if any they are trying to insert.

H.R. 86: Cybersecurity Education Enhancement Act of 2013
- Gives power to DHS to provide "Grants" to schools to develop cyber training. I support nothing that increase the size of Gov't and certainly nothing that increases the size and scope of DHS. Businesses want Cyber Experts then businesses can spend some of those billions giving grants to schools. Last thing we need is DHS reaching into the public school system.
- Minority schools will be given preferential treatment when deciding what Grants to provide. While not against an even playing field I do not support giving money to schools that have not shown they deserve it other than by means of race based judgement. It should be noted that this Bill is put forth by Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, enough said.

H.R. 967 Advancing America’s Networking and Information Technology Research and Development Act of 2013
- While on the surface this one sounds grand the wording within the Bill suggest to me that any industry player (Microsoft) that is willing to pay to play will have extreme influence on the outcome or direction which in turn will result in that technology being more likely the one(s) used by Government. Since it specifically addresses promoting Cloud services you know Microsoft and Google will have influence here. Not taking a stand either way on this one yet but it looks like a backdoor to promoting specific tech.

H.R. 624: Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act CISPA
- Time will tell. First runs at this were horrible. Since they are in closed door sessions now involving the likes of the NSA and FBI who knows what they will try to put in it.
