It was only a matter of time:
" The first person ever appointed as the CIO of the federal government, Vivek Kundra, is resigning after two and a half years on the job, the White House said Thursday.
There was no hint in the announcement made by Jack Lew, director of the Office of Management and Budget, that Kundra's exit was prompted by a shift in the White House's view on IT.
Lew, who praised the CIO's work, said Kundra was leaving to take a fellowship at Harvard."
So where exactly is Skippy going?
Lew said Kundra will move to Harvard in mid-August to serve as a joint fellow at the Kennedy School and at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society. "We are planning for a smooth transition," said Lew.
I mean seriously. Take a look at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society-- it's been a while since I've seen a this much Web 2.0 masturbation.
In fact it reminds me a lot of the questionable things Vivek not Kundra but Wadhwa did to build his cred: Starting from spoiled young desi douchbag roots in Australia to failing as entrepreneur to scummy UC Berkeley lecturer to Duke University Ivyiot 'expert' slash NASSCOM shill.
So. Here we go again. From Skippy's Shoplifting start to being 'put on leave' for bribery on his watch to becoming a Harvard Ivyiot academic fluffer to his pretty much given next move to expert shill/lobbyist, McKundra's moves show that he's following the same path as my little sahib of another surname.Skippy will have a LOT of company: other shining shining stars of the beltway like Patriot Act co-author Michael Chertoff, former Head of the DHS, who is now employed as a lobbyist by Rapiscan, a division of Hindiot Corp OSI to help them sell cancerous pornscanners to the agency he himself once lead.
Remember kids: It doesn't matter that Skippy grew up here or that he's a NeoCon. What matter is the fruit of his (spoiled, negligent, ethically challenged) labors.
