Today’s news on Vivek Kundra’s role in the federal space made me think of another CTO, Yuvi Kochar.  Yuvi, the CTO of the Washington Post, is a great connector of CTOs who leads the informal collective of the Washington Area CTO Roundtable.  Although I had heard Vivek speak a time or two, the first really deep interactions I had with Vivek were through Yuvi’s work in service to the tech community and I much appreciate that. For a quick update on Vivek from a CTO perspective see: Vivek Kundra: The Alpha CTO – My interview of Vivek Federal Government Technology Directions and the Fed CTO – A pointer to tech work of the transition team. A Great CTO and Pot Shots from the Peanut Gallery – An appropriate correction to an off base Washington Post article. Vivek Kundra: Democratizing Data and Putting it in the Public Domain – Some comments on Apps for Democracy. The Technology Implications of the Obama Win – Megatrends, including some driven by Vivek. So, congrats Vivek.  Your country wishes you well and we all appreciate your service.  We look forward to a more widespread use of your models and methods and look forward to more delivery of services to our citizens….
