The New York Times “Bits” blog landed an interview with new U.S. C.T.O. Aneesh Chopra. The full interview should be checked out, but this section is worth highlighting:
When I asked about his goals for the job, Mr. Chopra walked over to his desk and grabbed one page of what appeared from a distance to be a PowerPoint deck, which he described as “my ‘theory of the case’ document.” It listed Mr. Chopra’s four objectives, as presented recently to Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff. They were:
Economic growth through innovation
Addressing presidential priorities through innovation platforms
Building the next-generation digital infrastructure
Fostering a culture of open and innovative government
Yet more evidence that the Obama administration is serious about bringing broadband to every corner of America.
