DorobekInsider.com: Yes, we know there is a new chief performance officer nominee — and a CTO
Saturday - 4/18/2009, 1:22am EDT
The White House issued a release earlier today — under embargo until 6a ET Saturday morning — about two senior White House posts.
A number of organizations decided to reject the embargo, including, somewhat shockingly, an un-bylined story in Federal Computer Week. (TechPresident.com has the best analysis so far.) I won’t do that. No, the stories are not hard to find out there. (Frankly, why the White House would issue an embargoed press release is somewhat inexplicable, but why would a new organization post the story? So you broke an embargo to post a story that everybody will have in a few hours? Um… congratulations! And yes, I got the release too. See — it’s right here!)
My late night causticness aside… we’ll reserve our thoughts for the actual release. All I’ll say is that the CTO isn’t totally unknown (and more here ), but we’ll have to see what we will all be Googling the chief performance officer.
So… we’ll just have to wait a few hours and then we can ponder.
