Hey guys! Tune in next week. 
 
The United States boasts the world’s most vibrant and dynamic startup culture.  Unfortunately, this innovative culture is under attack, threatened by patent trolls, a broken immigration system, and other obstacles that hurt U.S. entrepreneurial leadership.  

Join us for a Google Hangout on Thursday, June 12th  to learn what innovators and business owners should, and shouldn’t, do to promote entrepreneurship and innovative businesses.

Moderator:
Michael Petricone, Senior Vice President, Government Affairs, Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)

Panelists:
Ximena Hartsock, Founder, Phone2Action
Brandon Pollak, Director, Global Affairs, 1776 DC
Julie Samuels, Executive Director, Engine Advocacy
Adrian Fenty, Business Development Manager, Perkins Coie, Senior Advisor, VC Andreessen Horowitz, and former Mayor of Washington, DC
This Hangout On Air is hosted by CEA. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

The fix is in: SOPA (aka PROTECT-IP, aka the Break the Internet bill) hearing tomorrow will have ONLY proponents of the bill testifying. http://act.demandprogress.org/sign/sopa_testimony/?akid=1017.469415.MYs0l9&rd=1&t=3

Hi, new followers. You might also want to check out my twitter feed at @juliepsamuels- I am usually more talkative there. But I'll try to keep up here, too. Thanks for joining the fun!

Might have something to do with your overwhelming level of awesome. Or spam! Or both.

I'm on my way to SLC to do some holography work at the moment. Otherwise LA is my home for the near future. Keep me appraised of your travel, I'm going to need lots of time off. :)

Tell the Senate to Pass Patent Reform

Do you believe patent reform in the U.S. would help entrepreneurs?  Last year the House passed bipartisan reform by a large margin and now it's the Senate's turn. Sign a letter urging them to act: https://trollingeffects.org/join

Two take-aways:

1. Best last sentence in a long time (not a spoiler, I swear): As always, the real future of tech belongs to some smart-ass kid in a Palo Alto garage.

2. Current abuses of the patent system are bad news for innovation. Not exactly news (to put it mildly), but important nonetheless.
