Chris, just watched the video and found it very interesting. When it comes to cloud computing and opensource formats you must have a really hard job just getting all the needed elements together for a project like Nebula. What are some of the biggest threats to your project currently? How do you get everyone within Government onboard with your project? In the private sector such a program would be difficult to pull off, it must be twice as hard in the public sector. No?

Excellent interview, thanks Chris for taking the time to speak with us. I look forward to understanding how you plan to use the Nebula platform to help with data processing within your organization.

Hi Chris and thank you for such a great opportunity to gain insight on NASA and its technology vision and strategy. One question I hope you will answer is about your move from the startup/traditional IT business place into a government CIO role. What skills do other CIOs need to have or boost to make such a career decision? And a second quick followup is what is the most challenging aspect for a CIO in a federal agency role today?

Chris: Thanks for spending your time with us. I was struck by your comment that at NASA you tap into your entrepreneurial background and approach NASA projects as if they were start-ups. Later you talked about the expectation of the NASA CIO to be innovative and not simply provide the IT tools. In January, a Gartner consultant declared that the CIO of 2010 and beyond is entrepreneurial. On that score you're clearly a step ahead.

Qhen I started writing for CIOZone, I set up a Google news alert for "chief information officer." Over many months I've noticed that a noticeable majority of CIO mentions -- industry magazines, blogs by them and about them -- are about government CIOs. Is public-sector IT is a more collegial community that values exchanging knowledge and ideas with their colleagues? Coming from the private sector, what is your own perception of public-sector CIOs?
