The San Francisco Chronicle reports that President Bush will propose a 12.3 percent increase in technology spending for fiscal 2004, with part of that funding earmarked for cyber-frontier technologies of the war on terrorism. “We’re moving to take more advantage of technologies coming out of Silicon Valley, as opposed to the government trying to jury-rig our own versions of technology,” said White House official Mark Forman, who presented a preview of the budget at a conference hosted by Oracle Corp. in San Diego.
