Submission + - Dvorak Claims US CIO Vivek Kundra is a Fraud (

Philip K Dickhead writes: "From the "can-you-spare-some-change dept.":

John Dvorak researches the background of the US Chief Information Officer, Vivek Kundra, and discovers some very serious questions pertaining to his background and qualifications. Regarding his claimed MS in Information Technology from the University of Maryland? "The registrar has no record of it. After initially posting this article the degree has cropped up apparently at the nearby University Campus in 2001. This was found by Nextgov.Com. But his degree in biology has yet to appear as his record shows a degree from College Park Campus for Psychology and nothing more." "I first suspected something was fishy about this fellow by listening to... his common referrals to Twitter and Google Docs as some sort of high-tech breakthroughs and a way to save money and empower the public... pure cornball pop culture and the blogosphere, not... computer science or Information technology." "He hasn't done anything to warrant this appointment. There are no great policy papers. There are no books. There is no invention. There is nothing but vague tech positions in city and state governments. How does this make him a "techno-whiz" as he was portrayed by the New York Times? It took him six years to get a simple undergrad degree in psychology! Was it just because he uses Facebook and likes Twitter?" These are not the first troubles and dubious circumstances related to Kundra and his appointment."
