Video: Vint Cerf's Views on Obama's Top Tech Job
Google hosted an open house yesterday morning at the company's new office in Reston Town Center. Google employees there are focusing on repackaging Google's search, mapping and other tools and selling it to the government. I wrote about Google's goals with the federal government earlier this fall.
Google announced partnerships with Reston Interfaith, a nonprofit that helps those in need of food, shelter and affordable housing. It also said it will partner with Fairfax County Schools to provide computers, help with science fairs and other technology-oriented projects.
Vint Cerf, Google's Internet Evangelist (yes, that's his actual title) was part of the Welcome-to-Reston party, and shared his views on the new chief technology officer position president-elect Obama has pledged to create. (He dispelled rumors that he is in the running for the job.) He also talked about what he thinks the government should be doing to help start-ups and small businesses get through the tough economic times, and how rebuilding the nation's infrastructure needs to include broadband.
Check it out for yourself.
