Obama plans to really geek things up around here


First, a disclaimer that I neither support nor oppose any particular candidate blah, blah, blah, here’s something interesting.

Barack Obama’s technology plan includes the creation of a Chief Technology Officer position that "would ensure government officials holds open meetings, broadcast live webcasts of those meetings, and use blogging software, wikis and open comments to communicate policies with Americans, according to the plan."

Matt Marshall of VentureBeat says that the plan represents "the most comprehensive set of policies" he’s ever seen. The 9-page plan covers issues like broadband access, wireless spectrums, network neutrality, privacy, and immigration. I’ve embedded the document after the jump for your reading pleasure or displeasure as the case may be.
