What makes a good state CIO?

The role of the CIO in government is changing everywhere, but especially in state government. Some CIOs, like Vermont CIO John Quinn, say they're judged by how well he's completing the consolidation and centralization of the state's IT services. Others, like Nebraska CIO Ed Toner, said he regularly publishes his agency's performance metrics — good and bad. Doug Robinson, the executive director of the National Association of State Chief Information Officers had a lot to say. All told, the job is hard. It's changing. And it's going to keep changing. Colin Wood has more from Quinn, Robinson and Toner on StateScoop.
