I’m being a bit cheeky with an early prediction (but it is the month for predictions), and all the pundits are predicting that the new United States CTO, due to be announced later today, will be the current CTO of the District of Columbia, Vivek Kundra.
A quick glance at his Blog, will show why he is the leading favourite with a penchant for the Democratisation of Public Sector Information, and transparency of government information. Major planks of President-Elect Obama’s IT Strategy.
Interestingly, he also has a strong interest for Mashups. Something that will no doubt be of interest to those that follow the Collaborative (Service Oriented) technologies.
In a few hours as Obama’s Cabinet is finalised, we will see if Kundra makes the cut.
