The rumors swirling around are that the India-born Kundra is a Blackberry-addicted, Google-apps-maps-obsessed, cloud-computing, open source feinding, crowd sourcing, Apple zealot. (And this is the US government we’re talking about?!). Last year Kundra reportedly had 38,000 D.C. staffers ditch Microsoft Office in favor of Google Apps and this video of Kundra ogling over Google has been making the rounds. It seems like Microsoft is once again culturally the odd man out.
Meanwhile, the elephant in the room is that Obama still hasn’t managed to fill the Chief Technology Officer post. Google’s Schmidt reportedly turned down the job. Who do you think should be Obama’s tech czar and why do you think he’s having such a tough time filling it?
