I like technology that improves the way societies are governed.

I believe government service by passionate, conscientious citizens is the highest form of government oversight. If you want a better government (whatever that means to you), sign up. I also believe the U.S. Government needs to try harder to recruit such people, and that the barriers are too great for honest would-be civil servants.

I’ve been a federal CIO, a technology consultant to the Intelligence Community, a government transparency advocate, a writer, a speaker, an intelligence analyst, and an obituary writer.
