More on Obama's Technology Agenda



January 21, 2009 By

"Let us be the generation that reshapes our economy to compete in the digital age." With that statement, the Obama Administration launched its Technology Agenda -- among about two dozen subjects in all -- on the Whitehouse.gov Web site. While broad in scope, it outlines administration positions on many  technology-related issues from education to stem cell research. The administration, for example, will support network neutrality, protect privacy, deploy next-generation broadband, make the R&D tax credit permanent and protect American intellectual property at home and abroad. The administration, says the agenda, will lower health care costs by investing in electronic information technology systems, and modernize public safety networks.

Early in the presidential campaign, Obama also released a  technology plan.
