Looks promising…….

Obama’s pick of the Chief Technology Officer for the USA looks promising from an innovation perspective:

“In choosing Aneesh Chopra to be federal chief technology officer, President Barack Obama tapped one of state government’s more innovative and energetic IT officials. The move, announced Saturday, offers more evidence that Obama is serious about using technology to change the way Washington works.”


“In Chopra, Obama picked a CTO with a track record of understanding both the power of innovation, and the relationship between technology, education and economic success. That’s not to say Chopra won’t be tested: The federal bureaucracy surely will try his patience. And crucial questions about the reporting relationships and synchronization among the Obama’s CIO, CTO and chief performance officer must be answered.”
