Submission + - Aneesh Chopra confirmed by Senata as first US CTO

Unequivocal writes: "FCW has scooped the news that Aneesh Chopra has been confirmed as the first Federal CTO during an executive session on May 20. Reading from prepared remarks Chopra is quoted by WSJ blogs as saying:

We will apply the most innovative technologies to our most important challenges — bending the health care cost curve, optimizing the energy grid to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, delivering an educational system focused on student excellence with special emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics, protecting our nation's critical infrastructure, and building the high-wage, high-growth jobs in all corners of our country

Some information on what the CTO didn't say during his confirmation hearing can found at Read Write Web. Summary: He didn't speak about his plans for openness in government because no one asked him about it."
