Re: You never know where enlightenment might come from
It's interesting, one's a Republican, the other a Democrat. Connolly says he agrees on practically nothing that Issa stands for -- except managing IT better in government. Issa comes from the tech sector; Connolly's VA district probably has more tech companies than any other Congressional district. They've joined forces in part to support a couple pieces of IT reform legislation.
There have been -- and still are -- a few enlightened legislators in Congress. Former VA Rep. Tom Davis and Del. Sen. Tom Carper come to mind. But on the whole, cloud computing is still a mystery for a lot of folks on the Hill.
