USACM Vice Chair Felten Appointed as First FTC Chief Technologist

Ed Felten, noted computer science researcher, Director of Princeton’s Center for Information Technology Policy, and one of USACM’s Vice Chairs, has been appointed Chief Technologist at the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). This is a new position for the Commission (the Federal Communications Commission has had one for years), and Felten will serve for a one-year term.

As Chief Technologist, Felten will advise the Commission on emerging technology and policy issues. Felten is no stranger to Washington, having testified before Congress and consulted with the Justice and Defense Departments, in addition to his previous work for the FTC. Congratulations to Ed on his appointment!
