Scott, a pilot, makes the analogy to flying a plane. Taking off might be the fun part, but you've got to land at some point. Federal News Radio's executive editor Jason Miller covered Scott's first speech as federal CIO. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with details on how Scott plans to pilot federal IT over the next two years.
