Pres. Obama Names Non Tech Guy To CIO Post… It’s Not As Bad As You Think

During his weekly YouTube Address, President Barack Obama announced that current Secretary of Technology for Virginia, Aneesh Chopra is going to be the new CIO of the United States. My first thought was “a Government droid to be CIO? What is the Prez thinking?” But keep in mind that if President Obama brought in someone from outside the Government, it would take them time to figure out how the circus that Government is works before they were effective. Chopra won’t have that problem having worked inside the Government. Plus he’s Web 2.0 savvy, so he’ll fit in well with the Obama types who are also Web 2.0 savvy.

It should be interesting to see what he does. You can bet that many will be watching closely.
