President Obama's inaugural address has so far won positive reviews from the tech community. Trade associations that represent Google, Apple and Cisco said they were encouraged by the themes covered in the president's inaugural address.
"From innovation to immigration, from the power of technology to transform our society to the power of our imagination to find solutions to long-standing challenges, the President’s inaugural address spoke to the heart of our sector’s shared priorities," said Tom Gavin, vice president of external affairs at the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI). In a statement, TIA President Grant Seiffert said the president indicated that "he is committed to using technology to remake government, reform education and empower citizens" in his inaugural address. "He deserves praise for advancing this commitment and recognizing the incredible economic and societal value of technology," Seiffert said. "Many of the goals he expressed today are shared in our own innovation agenda, and we look forward to working closely with the Obama administration over the next four years."
