Subject:How will we be effected? From:Melissa Nelson <melmis36 -at- hotmail -dot- com> To:<techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com> Date:Wed, 4 Jun 2008 10:13:52 -0400
I am hoping to find a way to ask this question without causing any disagreements on here, but as all the US members, and I am sure all the members around the World know, we in the US are in the middle of a VERY LONG presidential campaign. The economy is a huge issue in the campaign, and I am wondering how people think that the election will effect our profession and the IT industry as a whole. I am hoping to get responses that do not bash one side or the other, but would be interested in those responses OFF LINE.
For myself, I tend to be in a bit of a bubble, I am not far out of DC and my company does a lot of federal work, although we are breaking into commercial as well, but being here I do not know if I get an honest look at how our profession is influenced by political changes and would just be interested to know what people think. As I said, I do not want to start any fights, so if it is not possible to answer without being too partisan, please just email me off the list.
