Rachel Sterne has been appointed to the New York City’s  newly-created position, chief digital officer. The Bloomberg administration created the post six months ago and has since been searching for a person to fill the role. Sterne is the founder of the site GroundReport and teaches at Columbia Business School.

Reuters is planning on providing lots of coverage of the World Economic Forum in Davos. There will be a microsite, blog, live Twitter feed (@Reuters_Davos), and a daily broadcast.

New Jersey’s Gov. Chris Christie says he turned down the opportunity to give the Republican response to tomorrow’s State of the Union address. Rep. Paul Ryan (WI) will deliver the speech instead.
