I posted the following to my AzFoo at AzCentral.com blog on 24 November 2008.
Title: Obama needs a dream team of CSTEMers
"And during the campaign and to this date I see no evidence that Obama or any of his minions have any interest in the most trendy of tech developments: the MEMS, micro electro-mechanical systems," wrote John Dvorak on on 21 November 02008.
I agree with Dvorak's assessment.
"Generally speaking, the U.S. is not seen as a leader here [nanotechnolgy]," wrote Dvorak.
I believe Dvorak has stated a fact.
"I'm amused by how the media are so gaga over the fact that Obama is supposedly tech savvy because he is addicted to a Blackberry, a product of Research In Motion, and his campaign used the Internet to raise money," lamented Dvorak.
Gaga is right. This foolishness propagates down to a U.S. educational system that believes being able to use a computer defines computer literacy.
I hope Obama builds himself a strong dream team of CSTEMers to help guide him through the next few years. [CSTEMers are computational thinkers, scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.]
