He was appointed with a fair bit of fanfare as the United States’ first Chief Technology back in May of 2009, but it looks like Aneesh Chopra has decided that it’s time to make room for the nation’s second CTO. The White House confirmed today that Chopra is stepping down from his position, noting that he has amassed a “dizzying array of accomplishments.” Among those are his contributions to the Obama administration’s national wireless strategy, a set of internet policy making principals, and a number of efforts related to the President’s open government strategy, including the Data.gov platform.
