Obama's Open Source CTO


Yesterday, the Obama people created a new site called ObamaCTO.org, a feedback forum that opens the floor to suggestions: What should be the CTO's top priorities?

I hope Spectrum readers are well-represented here.

I'm already excited about the Obama administration just for the way he's doing business as president-elect. He could do worse than trying to harness the wisdom of crowds. Regardless of who you voted for, you'll agree that a White House CTO will be a heck of a lot more useful than a Drug Czar.
