Eventful day in Austin today - fireside chat with Amanda Crawford at the DIR Security Forum, Spectrum TV interview with Karla Leal and honored to be appointed chair of the House Select Committee on AI & Emerging Technologies by Speaker Dade Phelan. Now on the vonlane bus heading back which is, overall, cheaper, faster and more pleasant than a flight.
