I don't doubt his vision... but outside of vision, could you list 3 major accomplishments he achieved? End-to-end completed projects?

Chuck Hollis

I think you're applying the wrong standard here, Greg.

The White House CIO isn't about getting projects done, if you think about it. It's about changing how the US government acquires and consumes IT. That, in turn, means changing policies and getting multiple entrenched organizations to start to do things differently.

His was an agenda of change. And, I've got to tell you, the discussion with various govt agencies has been very different as a result of his influence and impact.

    Chuck now works for Oracle, and is now deeply embroiled in IT infrastructure.

    Previously, he was with VMware for 2 years, and EMC for 18 years before that, most of them great.

    He enjoys speaking to customer and industry audiences about a variety of technology topics, and -- of course -- enjoys blogging.

    Chuck lives in Vero Beach, FL with his wife and four dogs when he's not traveling. In his spare time, Chuck is working on his second career as an aging rock musician.

    Warning: do not ever buy him a drink when there is a piano nearby.

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
