And today, the nation's mission critical operations have a new chief executive, and yes, he carries a Blackberry so that he can know when some aspect of the operation goes down. I don't believe President Obama will be reading Mission Critical today looking to improve the PUE of government facilities, but I expect that his team will be looking to improve the nation's mission critical operations and reduce its energy footprint.
It's always been widely reported that the Obama administration will appoint a virtual CTO or technology czar to deal with problems plaguing our technology infrastructure.
I'd like to compile a list of specific suggestions for helping the administration achieve these goals, so that I can forward them to as many levels of government as possible, including the technology czar or the President himself, should I get the opportunity. Perhaps I can reach him on his Blackberry.
