Nomination for Federal CTO

From the Barack Obama campaign site:

"Obama will appoint the nation's first Chief Technology Officer (CTO) to ensure that our government and all its agencies have the right infrastructure, policies and services for the 21st century. The CTO will ensure the safety of our networks and will lead an interagency effort, working with chief technology and chief information officers of each of the federal agencies, to ensure that they use best-in-class technologies and share best practices."

I nominate Tim O'Reilly as the first Federal CTO. Do I hear a second??
