Does anyone else find the hoopla over U.S. CIO Vivek Kundra’s qualifications (U.S. CTO and Kundra-buddy Aneesh Chopra caught some shrapnel) to be among the most interesting IT stories of the year? John Dvorak’s poorly researched statements about Kundra’s education might have been answered and might weaken Dvorak’s argument, but his other questions about Kundra’s qualifications warrant a real discussion. The country’s IT infrastructure is very important, and there needs to be a serious discussion about whether a cutting-edge vision is more important than years of experience influencing the IT landscape. Kundra is far from a world-renowned technologist or thought leader, but if he can deliver on his vision, does his pedigree matter?
