CEA's Shapiro Sounds the Alarm
Last week, CEA and president and CEO Gary Shapiro was named a “Titan of Technology” by the Northern Virginia Technology Council. Here’s the speech he gave to the group:
I want to talk to you today about our future – as Americans, and as leaders of the technology industry.
I was humbled to be selected as a Titan of Technology by NVTC, an organization I am so proud to be a part of. I want to be respectful of your time and careful to engage you on the biggest issues of our day. The biggest issue of the day is the economy. I submit to you that innovation and the tech industry are our best hope for jobs and economic recovery.
