Happy Anniversary, JOBS Act!

In case you missed it, today marks the one-year anniversary of the JOBS Act. For those assembled in the Rose Garden for that momentous signing and for millions of entrepreneurs who would benefit from the law, hopes were high. A year later, we're still waiting for key provisions of the Act, notably crowdfunding and (Title III) and the lifting of the general solicitation ban (Title II).

There's been plenty written about that in the days leading up to the one-year anniversary (see links below) and several events today to commemorate the one-year mark (I participated in one in NYC yesterday). But I am reminded of the words of Bill Gates, who sagely observed that when it comes to disruptive technologies, we tend to overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten.  The revolution, apparently, will wait. 

Happy anniversary JOBS!
