Vivek Kundra is the new US Government CIO
In case you didn't know. Vivek Kundra was behind Apps for Democracy, a Mashup contest initiated by the Washington D.C. government while he was the CTO. It invited contestants to use the government's official Data Catalogue with a Mashup Platform of choice to produce useful applications. "City in the Cloud" is another initiative by him, migrating D.C. government employees and processes to Google Apps in the cloud.
