Deputy CTO reprimanded for Gmailing at work


Old habits die hard.

The White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy reprimanded deputy federal chief technology officer Andrew McLaughlin for using Gmail and Google Buzz for work-related communication, rather than his official government e-mail account.

McLaughlin was Google’s director of public policy and government affairs before jumping to the public sector.

OSTP decided McLaughlin’s off-the-books conversations didn’t have any impact on policy decisions, and the reprimand reportedly is no more than a slap on the wrist.
