This coming week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will sit before House and Senate committees. He'll be answering questions about how a conservative political firm improperly obtained data about up to 87 million Facebook users. The Cambridge Analytica scandal looks like it may be a tipping point when it comes to how the public and how politicians view social media.
Mark Zuckerberg will be headed to Washington. No one knows precisely when or to whom, but he himself has said he would be “happy” to testify.
That he has never been before Congress is one of those minor miracles that only technology companies seem capable of generating through their bulky “policy” (i.e. lobbying) teams and still considerable popularity.
A little-noticed provision in the 2,232-page government spending bill passed last week bans U.S. arms from going to a controversial ultranationalist militia in Ukraine that has openly accepted neo-Nazis into its ranks.
Tech policy issues could drive decision-making at the polls in 2018, Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), whose district includes Silicon Valley, told Bloomberg Law.

Net neutrality must be restored. that’s a given. the decision in December by the Federal Communications Commission to abolish the First Amendment of the Internet was, in the words of dissenting commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, “not good for consumers. Not good for businesses. Not good for anyone who connects and creates online.
Indian American freshman U.S. Rep. Ro Khanna was among more than a quarter of California's members of Congress who sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security regarding work eligibility of spouses of H-1B visa holders.
The man's complaint seemed straightforward: He had come to the emergency room last June at Harrington Hospital in Southbridge, Massachusetts, for wrist pain that wouldn't quit.
I really hate starting stories with, “So I was dating this guy,” but unfortunately, that’s precisely how this one begins. Jake, a blindingly handsome man with more game than Steph Curry, and I had been seeing each other somewhere between casually and semi-seriously for a while. We were sleeping together regularly, but we’d never had “the talk” about exclusivity.
The Battle of 1498.
What sounds like something on a history class pop quiz is actually the answer to a civics question, one Americans are asking in mounting anger: How do we cut drug prices in the U.S., which are the highest in the world, and provide universal access to lifesaving drugs?
