The technology industry and Washington policymakers are clashing in unprecedented ways. The Technology 202 is a new newsletter to help you track the news.

President Trump says the federal government is scrutinizing Amazon, Facebook and Google for potential antitrust violations. Lawmakers have declared the “Wild West” era of social media over as they contemplate tough privacy laws and other ways to respond to the spread of disinformation and fake news on digital platforms. Emerging technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence and quantum computing are being debated throughout the government, and companies are racing to adapt to this new reality while advancing their political and policy agendas.

That’s why on Tuesday, Dec. 4, we’re launching The Technology 202, a weekday morning newsletter from reporter Cat Zakrzewski.  

The Technology 202 will deliver smart analysis about where technology and politics intersect to help you make sense of the dynamic relationship between Silicon Valley and Washington.

The newsletter will feature reporting from an expanded team of Post reporters covering technology in Washington, San Francisco and Seattle. You can expect scoops and updates on important issues including:

  • White House and Congressional tech initiatives

  • News from key regulators

  • Privacy

  • The future of work

  • Industry lobbying

  • Artificial intelligence

  • Tech culture
