Teri Takai Resigns
I'm with you, Chris.  It's hard to see that someone with 30 years in IT at Ford followed by two demanding CIO jobs for Michigan and California governments should be faulted for thinking it's time to look for something less demanding than hearding DOD technology into the new world order.  She's served 3 Secretary's of Defense and stayed twice the length of the usual appointee tenure in a brutal role--plus she persuaded Rob Carey to leave the CIO of the Navy job to become her deputy.  Doesn't seem very suspicious to me that it's time to turn over the challenges to someone new.

Re: Conspiracy theories
You may be right, of course, but she's been in a very difficult government job for 3+ years. Her roots are more in state government than federal, and the DoD job is about as sprawling as it gets.

Re: Conspiracy theories
I know am going to sound like a conspiracy theorist when I say this but there might be something fishy behind Teri's resignation from the department of defence. It is interesting to note that this article makes no mention of her reasons for leaving her post; maybe if it did the question of her motives for doing so would not have been raised. Even more interesting is the fact that her resignation follows closely on the heels of another resignation by a senior employee of the DoD.
