Checking in with the most read items on The for the past seven days…

Several items on the Federal News Radio Book Club, which took place last Wednesday with Stephen M. R. Covey, the author of The SPEED of Trust along with Dave Wennergren, the Defense Department’s deputy CIO. It was a fascinating discussion, so… I hope you’ll give it a listen if you missed it. I have the link posted from here. We’re on the search for the next book club suggestion, so…

Meanwhile, the most read items from 11-24 November…

  1. Obama CTO frenzy: More names in the mix
  2. Apps for Democracy… and my recommendation for Obama’s CTO [We heard more about DC’s remarkable Apps for Democracy program from Peter Corbett, president of iStrategy Labs on Federal News Radio’s Daily Debrief with Chris Dorobek and Amy Morris last week. I should also note that we also spoke to Andrew McAfee, associate professor at the Harvard Business School and the person credited with creating the term ‘enterprise 2.0.’ As I mentioned in the most read DorobekInsider item for the week, McAfee wrote a piece on what the CTO should do.. and we spoke to him about that of Federal News Radio’s Daily Debrief with Chris Dorobek and Amy Morris. You can hear that discussion here . If Team Obama hasn’t spoken to McAfee, he would also be on the CJD list of people who would make for a great Obama CTO.]
