Reports are that President-elect Obama has narrowed his choice for his newly-created post of CTO, and on that final list is Cisco’s CTO Padmasree Warrior. Let’s just leave aside for a moment just what this CTO position is – because I have yet to see it defined in anything other than political buzzwords. And let’s ignore Cisco’s involvement too, because I don’t know what that means yet either…
I just have to say, what a great name for a White House CTO. She could log onto World of Warcraft under her real name, and nobody would notice it – who knows, maybe she already does! She’s up to date, moreso than me perhaps since she uses Twitter for more than blog post updates. And what political hack in the White House wouldn’t shudder a bit before walking into the Warrior’s Cave, I mean office?
She’s got my vote already. Now I’ll just try to figure out what she’s supposed to do. Maybe she can help Julius Genachowski find a nickname, or maybe just revamp the FCC’s website so it makes any sense at all. If she succeeds at that, she’ll already be a success. But she’s not the nominee yet I guess.
