Obama Appoints a Cloud Computing Fancier
A Delhi-born ex-marketing guy, Vivek Kundra, has been named America's first CIO

Ahead of Barrack Obama's promised appointment of America's first CTO, the CTO of the District of Columbia, a Delhi-born ex-marketing guy, Vivek Kundra, has been named America's first CIO.

He's a self-professed cloud fancier who replaced Washington's Microsoft widgetry with Google's web-based applications.

Perhaps, if he has his way, the deficit-ridden post office will be forced to go digital and snail mail will become rare, if not history. Now that would be disruptive.
