Think About It One Day Per Year. Tech companies have more important things to do than worry about the government. But they can’t just ignore it – they should do the minimum, so they aren’t completely unprepared if something drastic happens. If they focus on it one day a year, or less than one-third of one percent of the time, that’s about the right amount. They should join a trade group like the WTIA or TechNet and at least meet their local officials, their congressmen and Senators, and any key regulators in state and federal government—but do it once a year.
