Why Washington doesn't 'get' IT, and how to fix that

Abstract:
As global competition intensifies, America needs continuous innovation. And IT will drive it. So far so good.

Therefore, Washington has far too little appreciation for the fact that IT drives innovation, growth and prosperity across the entire economy. Our industry's contributions to breakthroughs in areas such as genomics, nanotechnology, bioinformatics, imaging, health care, communications, entertainment and financial services -- to name a few -- are not well understood.
