Cohen Takes Job at Google
Jared Cohen, a State Department Policy Planning staffer for the past four years, is leaving government to take a position with Google. Cohen will direct a new division called Google Ideas, he told Foreign Policy magazine in an interview.
Cohen delivered the keynote address at the CEA Line Shows conference in New York this past June. Only 29 years old, Cohen played a major role in the use of Twitter and other technologies to encourage freedom, democracy and openness throughout the world.
