Obama taps Google's Schmidt for advisory council

Share this content:

Google CEO Eric Schmidt's ongoing relationship with President Obama has just gotten an official stamp. According to the White House, Schmidt has been named as a member of the Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, a group which will advise the president and vice president on a variety of science, technology and innovation areas.

Schmidt was a vocal supporter of Obama in his presidential campaign and has since been a guest at the White House. He had been mentioned in the press as a possible candidate for the administration's chief technology officer, a position that went instead to Aneesh Chopra, Virginia's secretary of technology. 

In addition to Schmidt, the advisory council includes a broad array of leading U.S. scientists and engineers.
