It was good to have Senator Warner in town on Tuesday.  I had the opportunity to join him for a lunch meeting and briefly discuss various technology projects happening in Virginia, including the new AWS campus in NOVA.  Mark is perhaps the most technology savvy member of the Senate and is deeply invested in the tech community.

During his wrap-up, Warner, dropped two ideas that moved beyond the current political dialogue: designing a benefits system that attaches to a person, not a job, and creating tax credits that reward businesses that invest in workers.

“Let’s fix the Affordable Care Act and improve it, but we are in a time in our country and the economy that the old 20th-century notion that you get out of school and you go to work, and work at the same company for 35 years for your whole career — that world is gone,” he said. “My kids are going to have 10 different jobs before they are 35.”
