The intersection of fiscal politics, national crisis, and technology regulation is a silly place, as there should be no overlapping space between the three issues. And yet. Good news: We're not ending net neutrality. The bad news, depending on your politics, is that we're likely going to shut down the United States government. That said, the current Washington dynamic has offered up a new fact: Technology policy and regulation is game for political football. Long gone now are the days in which technology managed to steer mostly clear of politics.
