The New York Times is reporting that President-Elect Barack Obama is set to nominate Julius Genachowski to be the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. Genachowski was a fund-raiser for Obama during his presidential campaign, and also contributed to Obama's online strategy. The two men went to law school together, and played basketball against one another. If nominated, Genachowski would have to be approved by Congress. Whoever fills the chair will have a hand in shaping the future of wired and wireless communications.
