Obama’s FCC Pick

Julius Genachowski, a former Obama classmate at Harvard Law, is the president-elect’s choice to head the Federal Communications Commission. Obama’s technology adviser during the campaign, Genachowski, 46, worked for the FCC during the Clinton administration and is a founder of the D.C. VC firm LaunchBox Digital. He also put in eight years at IAC/InterActive Corp., where he was “instrumental in organizing technology companies to address regulation of the flow of Internet information, long before the concept of so-called net neutrality was de rigueur in Silicon Valley and Washington,” The Wall Street Journal reports. Genachowski had also been considered a candidate for the new chief technology officer post.
