CTO Chopra Talks Cloud, Spectrum, Net Neutrality on CSPAN

The Chief Technology Officer of the U.S., Aneesh Chopra, spoke on C-SPAN's The Communicators program last Friday, explaining just what he does as the president's advisor on technology policy. He said his job is to figure out how to upgrade the government's digital infrastructure and find ways to use broadband Internet access, cloud computing, and mobile technology to carry out the White House's health-care, education and energy goals.

Check out the show here, also airing at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. tonight. I talk to him as a guest host on the show about spectrum policy -- he thinks we need to think less about who gets it and who doesn't and more about ways to share bands of radiowaves.

He also reaffirmed the White House's commitment to net neutrality, saying let's see what unfolds at the Federal Communications Commission as it votes this week on a proposal that will set off a months long debate on net neutrality rules.
