Letter: Google CEO as chief technology officer would be idiocy

Regarding "Who would be Obama's CTO?"

Giving the Google CEO the national chief technology officer job is precisely equivalent to giving Goldman Sachs control of the U.S. Treasury: idiocy.

Google is both out of control and achieving a supranational capability to violate every law, every semblance of privacy.

Both parties are criminal, both candidates are clueless, and the last thing this country needs is Google über alles.
