Lessig for Tech Czar

November 15, 2008 | Comments Off on Lessig for Tech Czar

Yesterday the Washington Post included an article about Obama’s plan to appoint the federal government’s first chief technology officer, a much-needed position in today’s hi-tech world.

A leader such as Stanford Law professor and free culture advocate Lawrence Lessig would make an ideal candidate.  Lessig has been instrumental in shaping ideas about the sharing of information and the future of the web.  An Obama supporter and proponent of rooting out corrupution in politics, he would serve as an effective policy maker and advisor, and would be a certain asset to the president’s cabinet.
