FCW Insider: FCW accidentally elects Obama

We heard from a reader this morning who, after looking at FCW.com, was worried that he had overslept and missed Election Day.


Late yesterday, we highlighted a blog post at Wired.com that proposed several IT bigwigs who could serve as chief technology officer for Sen. Obama, if he wins the election.


The problem was our headline: Who will be Obama's CTO?


Whoops. That should have been (and is now) "Who would be Obama's CTO?"


I want to assure you that this was no case of partisan bias or political prognostication. Just bad grammar.
