DisCo Policy Forum Q&A – Jared Polis and Rob Pegoraro (2 of 5)
After the first panel on competition, we hosted a Q&A with Rep. Jared Polis (D-Co.), moderated by former DisCo contributor Rob Pegoraro. Rep. Polis explained to Rob that the theme of “disruption” resonated with him, because his career has always been disruptive, pitted against legacy interests. They discussed Rep. Polis’s tech background, which was instrumental during SOPA, and also helps him understand how startups are affected by patents. The conversation also covered other tech policy areas that need reform, such as several privacy-related issues, and how people can get involved.
