Microseconds and Macropolicy
Wriston, Walter B.
BECAUSE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY cuts across all sectors of our society and affects both our domestic and foreign policies, it is not surprising that there is no particular part of our government that is in charge of formulating policy to answer these questions. Policy is currently split among the Department of State, the U.S. Trade Representative, the Department of Commerce, the Federal Communications Commission, and several other agencies. We have a number of ad hoc groups attempting to reconcile turf problems, but that may not be enough. The hour grows late. Providing a focus for our government's international information policy is, I suggest, a national issue that deserves our best thinking and best efforts.
