Here’s a quote from Craig himself about his suggestions for the country’s CTO under Barack Obama.
Craig Newmark, the founder of classifieds giant craigslist, has some advice for President-elect Barack Obama as he searches for a chief technology officer: Find someone who can foster public-private sector partnerships and “crack the whip” to bring about necessary reforms in tech policy.
First off isn’t it politically incorrect to use the phrase ‘crack the whip’ when speaking about President-elect Obama. For shame Mr. Newmark.
Secondly, when you talk about bringing about reforms does that include sites where crime is abundant and do nothing to stop it? Just curious.
