White House names Google’s Megan Smith the next Chief Technology Officer of the United States – The Washington Post.

Smith, the new U.S. CTO, is an MIT-trained mechanical engineer and entrepreneur with deep roots in the California tech world. She currently serves as a vice president at Google[x], the company’s lab for ambitious next-generation projects, like its delivery-by-drone Project Wing and its balloon-borne Internet connectivity program Project Loon. For nine years, Smith led Google’s team responsible for developing new business, where she led the acquisitions that would become Google Earth and Google Maps. And she’s familiar to Washington’s burgeoning “civic tech” community through her work with the Google Crisis Response project.
