America's Chief Technology Officer

Usually I don't much write much about politics here, but assigning Aneesh Chopra as the Chief Technology Officer is kind of a bold move of Obama. He'll work closely with Federal CIO Vivek Kundra and Jeffrey Zients, the Chief Performance Officer.

Not sure what it is, but I really like the idea of having some technologist sitting in Washington and taking care of how the government should be run on the technology side.

Wished the country of my origin (Germany) would make moves like this, instead of bolstering the dieing car industry.
