Voice of the Masses: How can Trump make computing great again?

OK, so it might sound like we’re jumping on the Trump hype train here, but there’s a serious point to this fortnight’s Voice of the Masses. Donald Trump has repeatedly positioned himself as the anti-establishment candidate, but also the best for boosing jobs in the USA. So with that in mind, when he takes office, what can he do to really help the IT industry in America? What could really shake up “the establishment”?

Obviously as GNU/Linux fans we’d like to see the end to software patents, or laws that push governments and public bodies to use open source and open document standards. But what else could or should the new president do? Do you think he cares about change, or will he just cosy up to entrenched interests in the IT industry? Should he stake his position in the great Vim vs Emacs war? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, and we’ll read out the best in our upcoming podcast.
