Linda Cureton, CIO, NASA
After a year-long search, NASA in September named Linda Cureton as its new CIO. Cureton shifts over from her previous role as CIO of the NASA Goddard Space Center.
NASA is moving ahead with a series of IT services contracts called the Information Technology Infrastructure Integration Program (I3P) valued at more than $4 billion, and reviewing RFPs for that program will be among Cureton's first tasks. She will also oversee NASA's IT centralization and consolidation efforts and will have a hand in IT projects at NASA's space centers.
While at Goddard, Cureton drove adoption of social media, started a popular blog, posted to Twitter, and pushed development of a social network called Spacebook that was built using open source. She's also a proponent of the cloud computing model.
Before starting with Goddard, Cureton was deputy assistant director of the office of science and technology and deputy CIO at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and held other IT management jobs with the departments of Energy and Justice.
