Delivering a USENIX conference keynote address in Boston this week, FTC chief technologist Ed Felten urged fellow computer scientists to do as he has done and serve in government.

Felten said that “technologists should seek out government posts because it gives them the opportunity to affect public policy, which often affects their jobs,” reports Chris Kanaracus of IDG News.

Felten is on leave from Princeton, where he is a professor of computer science and director of the Center for Information Technology Policy.
