How clueless is the US government where technology is concerned?

Gabriel Chapman, otherwise known as @Bacon_is_King on Twitter and Systems Engineer for Emulex joins Marc, Matt and Roger in a discussion that covered a number of topics including how the US government is encroaching on the technology industry through things like CISPA, the Oracle/Sun lawsuit, the FTC investigation into the Facebook/Instagram deal and the US patent office. But the discussion goes much broader than the role of Government to such things as bacon consumption and citizen developers.

Listeners will notice that some of the discussions seem strangely not up to date – and that’s because the podcast was recorded on May 10, and Marc didn’t get around to editing it until June 4th.  We’re not sure what that’s all about but we’re glad the recording is finally getting to see the light of day.
