Marketplace Tech

with Ben Johnson

06/16/2017: A gathering between Trump and the tech world

The White House and Silicon Valley are meeting up to try to make the federal government run better — whether or not each really wants to work together. On Monday, the newly created American Technology Council will gather for the first time to try to change up how the government uses digital services. Tony Romm, a senior editor at Recode, joined us to talk about the major tech CEOs who might show up, along with key tech issues the White House has its eye on. Afterwards, we'll play this week's Silicon Tally with Justin Haywald, the managing editor of Gamespot, and then look at the Grammys' plans to allow online voting.
