Europe versus Silicon Valley?


Europe’s radical plan to confront Silicon Valley
by Giovanni Buttarelli and Tim Cook.

What’s new: European officials have drawn up an aggressive plan to counter U.S.-based tech giants, Politico Europe reports.“European Commission officials are pushing … to set up a European Future Fund that would invest more than $100 billion … in high-potential European companies.”Why it matters: The goal is to “get Europe competing head-on with the American and Chinese tech giants it has lagged behind for decades.”P.S. Apple CEO Tim Cook salutes EU data-privacy regulator Giovanni Buttarelli — who died this week at 62 — in Italy’s largest newspaper, Corriere della Sera:His spirited search for solutions, rather than conflict, made his crowning achievement, the General Data Protection Regulation, both possible and durable. …We will all benefit from his work for many years to come. And I believe the cornerstone he laid will prove a sure foundation for one of humanity’s greatest projects.
