You never know where enlightenment might come from
Two Congressman form the Cloud Computing Caucus Advisory Group to enlighten federal agencies on cloud use. Maybe cloud advocates should form the Sequester Budgeting Caucus Advisory Group to enlighten Congress.

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.
