From The Atlantic:
Speaking at the Washington Ideas Forum Wednesday, U.S. Chief Technology Officer Megan Smith kept coming back to one idea: talent.
On the Department of Defense’s role as a research-and-development powerhouse: “What I want to do is unlock talent.”
On the security of government servers: “We have a great team working on this.”
On the fumbled launch of Healthcare.gov: “What was great was tech folks showed up and helped it work. … How do we get more of that tech talent in the government?”
On whether slow regulation hinders innovation: “There are talented regulators running as fast as they can.”
