Last week I had the honor to participate in the 5th Tampa Bay PMI
Symposium as a panelist. The event was organized very well and I was
impressed by the quality of the speakers.
I attended Carl Pritchard’s workshop on “Dealing with Project Risk and Opportunity” and enjoyed it immensely. The workshop was informative, real and entertaining at the same time, which is not easy to do when talking about risk management

I read an article in CIO Magazine about the plight of today's CIOs when multi-million dollar multi-year projects go awry. The article entitled "The CIO Scapegoat" indicates that it is unfair to hold the IT department completely responsible when there are so many other business units that contribute to a project's demise. In many cases, the CIO takes the fall for the failure and, as a direct result, they are either demoted, moved into a different organization or let go altogether.

Interesting read. This is essentially a WebSSO initiative with authentication based on CAC type ID cards or OpenID.
The CAC type of implementation (ID Cards) are not practical as they require everyone to have a card reader on their PC in order to do business with the government. I don’t see this happening anytime too soon.
