His bio is located here. In a nutshell, he is the co-founder and managing director of Rock Creek Ventures, an investment and advisory services firm. Before forming Rock Creek, he was a senior executive for eight years at IAC/InterActiveCorp serving as chief of business operations, general counsel, and a member of Barry Diller's office of the chairman, and playing a key role in IAC's growth to become a multibillion-dollar global major e-commerce and new media company.

He did a lot of other stuff too, like serve on the boards of The Motley Fool, Website Pros, and Mark Ecko Enterprises.

How's he being received? Mostly good.

MarketWatch quotes Ken Ferree, a former FCC media bureau chief under Republican Chairman Michael Powell, as saying Genachowski is an "outstanding choice."

"He is knowledgeable, experienced, and presumably will have the ear of the most influential people within the administration," said Ferree, president of the libertarian-leaning Progress and Freedom Foundation.

Strong leadership
