A picture is worth a thousand words, so I'll cut to the chase: Click HERE to visit The Dark Wraith Forums for an enlarged view of this revealing graphic and insights which depict an "updated" version of what our corporotocracy looks like. The Dark Wraith writes:
"President-elect Obama has formed the Technology, Innovation and Government Reform policy working group to "develop.... proposals and plans from the Obama Campaign for action during the Obama-Biden Administration." So, what kind of people are being put on this important policy formation committee? Among others, Blair Levin, a telecom investment analyst; Julius Genachowski, former chief counsel to FCC Chairman Reed Hundt; and Sonal Shah, head of Google.org, which is Google's "global philanthropy" front. That's right: a telecom veteran, an apologist for a federal agency that has let Right-wing corporatists consolidate control of the American media, and a bigwig shill for an emerging global monopolist. Yes, indeed. These are just the kinds of people we want advising the government on reform and government implementation of technology. Someone please drown out my laughter by chanting something about Obama and that Hope-'n-Change stuff."
Of particular interest are insiders Genachowski and of note, former Goldman Sachs alumnus, Shah:
Julius Genachowski is described as
“a former law school classmate of Obama's and an active and early member of the campaign, has been talked about as a candidate for the nation's first chief technology officer or FCC chairman. He is (sic) venture capitalist, the co-founder of Rock Creek Vetnrues (sic) and LaunchBox Digital. Genachowski also served as a senior executive at IAC/InterActiveCorp, where he was head of business operations.”
To further pave open up the floodgates for more cheap labor from India to take tech jobs from American white collar workers and drive down wages here at home during this time of disappearing white collar jobs, we can trust our new president-elect Obama to ensure that this happens, as Rob Oak of noslaves.com reports "Obama Picks Cheap Labor & Guest Worker Queen Janet Napolitano for DHS!" To potentially help kick to the curb local tech professionals at a brisk pace, Google has the ultimate insider help of Sonal Shah:
“Shah has a lengthy resume on international development issues: prior to joining Google she was a vice president at Goldman, Sachs and Co., developing the firm's environmental policy. She is also the co-founder of Indicorps, a U.S.-based non-profit organization offering one-year fellowships to Indian-Americans to work on development projects in India. Sonal worked at the Department of Treasury from 1995-2002 on various economic issues. She is on the Obama-Biden Transition Project Advisory Board.”
