Job Opportunity in the White House

Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes left his Silicon Valley job to help the Obama team run its social networking and online fundraising platforms. Google's Eric Schmidt served as an informal adviser to the campaign and later went to Washington to serve on the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. In the White House, the president appointed the nation's first chief technology officer and first chief information officer and reached out to the tech community in both Silicon Valley and Washington.

The Jan. 14 statement says that the president "will not support legislation that reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk, or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet."
