Tech Talk: A Conversation with CDT’s Founder
Written by Brian Wesolowski
The Center for Democracy & Technology is almost as old as the internet itself. Almost. And without question – and yes, I’m biased – it has been one of the most influential groups in the tech policy arena. The internet and digital world we know today would be very, very different without CDT’s advocacy efforts.
Jerry Berman founded CDT back in 1994 and remains engaged with the the organization to this day. He is certainly one of the pioneers of tech and internet policy, and he joined Tech Talk to look back on his most memorable policy battles, shared his thoughts on what the future will look like, and even shared some insights on how to disconnect from D.C. Jerry is a wealth of historical information and also quite charming.
