As I mentioned in Scoble's thread, I think a CTO position would need to come with serious authority. The political challenges are enormous and I have lived them on a smaller scale. A cabinet position? Sure, that'd make sense. But the minute you park the "national CTO" inside another agency (say, Commerce), he/she's fucked.

(Thread I mentioned is on FriendFeed here:

For this position, we need *real* people. Not the sort of self-satisfied Web 2.0 idiots that Scoble and others are such a big fan of.

Who am I talking about?

Of course, historically, the adding of a new cabinet position generally comes in a time of war or heightened crisis. Not during slow boiling worries over competitiveness.
