US President Barack Obama in less than three months before the expiration of his term in January 2017 is preparing for what he will do after leaving the White house. Chances are that his new work will be closely linked to Silicon valley, the newspaper The New York Times.
The publication notes that officials closely associated with Obama, “over the past year have made about 10 trips to high-tech centers in California”.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if it (high technology) will be one of the priorities on which it will focus after the presidency,” said Steve Case, founder of AOL.
The New York Times recalls that a number of former supporters of Obama have already moved on to work in companies engaged in the sphere of high technologies. So, David, Pluff, the head of election campaign of Obama in 2008, is currently working at Uber, and former press Secretary of the President Jay Carney moved to Amazon.
Former senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer is now working at GoFundMe, and headed under Obama protection Agency United States environmental Lisa Jackson is a senior Executive at Apple.
In turn, former employees of Google and Microsoft moved into the administration of the President of the United States.
In the White house Obama’s plans for the future have not yet commented. However, the former assistant to the President for policy in science and technology Phil Larson described his former boss as “a true geek”.
