    The protests against the House's Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Senate's Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA) earlier this year have been referred to as a "Nerd Spring" that spurred everyday Netizens into action. While not everyone agrees with that assessment, or the protests themselves, it was a watershed moment for tech policy. So what can we learn from the protests that can improve the policy process going forward? How has it changed the way techies engage in tech policy? •Michelle Quinn, Technology Correspondent, Politico PRO •Larry Downes, Author, The Laws of Disruption •Jonathan Nelson, Founder, Hackers and Founders •Nnena Ukuku, Co-founder and CEO, Black Founders Startup Ventures Recorded at Tech Policy Summit June 6, 2012, Napa, CA

                www.dustinmorrow.com The title of "He Shot His Dog Out In An Open Field" refers to an act that is implied but never directly addressed in the course of the narrative. Live-action bookends, depicting a man’s return to his childhood home, frame a series of famous paintings (by Grant Wood and legends of the Midwestern aesthetic) that explore the dual nature of the Midwest as a bleak, desolate, empty and threatening space, and a warm, healthy and inviting region. A richly layered soundtrack evokes life on the American farm, warping from nostalgic, homey and gentle to dark, cold and treacherous as the narrator describes his family’s journey from the economic, agricultural high of the late Seventies to the obliterating depths of the Farm Crisis in the mid-Eighties.
