I've never met Justin, but he deployed to Afghanistan with one of my best friends and he needs help right now. Please consider any donation, no matter how small, if you can.

I'm hearing this more and more from tech experts, though they usually include the growing chasm between Europe and the U.S. on data privacy. If things go particularly poorly, we could end up with a separate European internet split off from both the American and Chinese models.

So will relinquish his leadership of the Commerce Committee. As a tech reporter, I always appreciated his willingness to answer detailed policy questions thoughtfully. I suspect I'm not alone. Hoping continues the tradition, should he take the gavel!
