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.

Here’s my full CV as a PDF.

  1. Hello,

    I came across your article about becoming an Intelligence Analyst. I am particularly interested in working for the US government in this capacity, and your way of wording this type of service rings familiar to me. I would greatly appreciate your advice or input on my future path, as I will be applying for these types of jobs in the near future.

    Thank you.

    David Winter
