Los Angeles is a long way from Washington, DC

The Economics of Social Media Apparently Doesn't Include Public Policy

--But, my biggest take-away was the fact that in a full-day of chatter about social media, the only policy related conversation was a bit of back and forth with Google's lead content industry liaison. No mention of the many laws seeking to impinge social networking sites. No talk about new copyright rules. No chatter about social regulation of video. This is not a criticism. Just an observation. It shows that the lure of deals still overwhelms consideration of rules that might impact business models in the future.

I don't think there is much I could add to that.
