Oregon Congressman Greg Walden has been named the Chairman of the House Subcommittee that will oversee communications and technology policy in the 112th Congress. The subcommittee is one of six panels under the full Energy and Commerce Committee, which includes the Federal Communication Commission. He says what it means for Oregon is he will have influence that will affect nearly 10,000 jobs in the state:  "As we've seen from the establishment of Google in the Dalles, the new Facebook project in Prineville, the first cell tower in Fossil and a long list of other projects in the State; communication and technology play a critical role in the economy and quality of life in rural Oregon." Walden says his business experience of owning a group of radio stations gives him a unique understanding of communications and technology.  True to his vow for openness, Walden broke the news about his appointment via a twitter message in Morse code.
