The Nation’s C.T.O. Woos Silicon Valley by Ashlee Vance

Aneesh Chopra, the nation’s first chief technology officer, wants to make a very dear friend of Silicon Valley.

Mr. Chopra took his initial step on that quest on Tuesday night, when he addressed Silicon Valleyites during a stump speech hosted by the Churchill Club at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif. He delivered the expected lines about the government trying to work better with industry and used phrases like “blogs and wikis,” “collaboration” and “visualizations” to get across the point that the Obama administration has mastered Valley buzzwords.
