What a fascinating exercise in imagination is Victor Godinez’ speculation about the nation’s next Chief Technology Officer for the Dallas Morning News:
Or, if you want to cast an even wider net, consider serious science fiction writers like John Scalzi, Orson Scott Card or Jerry Pournelle, guys who think big, know how to communicate and are beholden to no one.
Why not pick all three? Then help balance the Federal budget by selling Vince McMahon the rights to broadcast their meetings?

Further on, Godinez says that Arthur C. Clarke would have been a popular choice. A Brit living in Sri Lanka?
