CfA Summit 2012

Conway and Hammer talk at the event about Silicon Valley’s engagement in politics. Conway on the effort to keep Twitter in and improve the environment for startups. Conway:

The tech community in San Francisco…has had a hell of a civics lesson in the last year and a half…I think it can happen in every city in America

Hammer:

At the end of the day for all this creativity for these startups to happen, you need a base, you need engineers…by embracing technology, embracing these business positions it would help you, and at the end of the day out of these ecosystems would come more jobs, more spinoffs
