Short Take: Commerce Department deals with tech issues

At a town hall meeting in Maryland, Commerce Department Secretary William Daley announced a three-point plan to boost the nation's number of high-tech workers. Daley said Commerce is planning a series of "tech talks" around the country, will set up an online mentoring program between K-12 students and National Medal of Technology winners, and plans to create a bureau for groups that want to invite medal recipients to speak.
