In one of the tightest contests ever seen in a Reg poll, columnist and software developer Ted Dziuba has emerged as the people's choice to be Barack Obama's "Chief Technology Officer". Dziuba beat off a stiff challenge from Hans Reiser, the fallen Linux guru who was sentenced to 15 years for murder in an Oakland, Ca. court last …
... is it friday already?
What next for the Big D ?
After his stint in Government, I sincerely hope he will retire to write his eagerly awaited opus magnum "Fuck! Swearpocalypse. How I learned to stop being such a cunt and love swearies!"
Sterling work from the Reg, as usual :-)
Dziuba for politics
The world would be a much better place if Dziuba never wrote anything in The Reg again, so if I had known about this poll, I would have voted with two hands for him to get into politics and out of technical writing. I am glad he won !
Thank You, Everyone
I would just like to thank everyone who didn't vote for me for not voting for me. I am very busy at the moment and the additional responsibilities would have been onerous.
Paris, because she didn't vote for me (I know this for a fact because no one voted for me).
amanfromMars for UK CTO
as 'he' talks a lot more sense than Gordo/Darling or the other UK spin docs
amanfrommars for CTO!
He would talk less crap than most politicians.
>"Now turn over to see why America* voted as it did..."
Normally I'd expect to see a footnote relating to that.
Unless of course I've misunderstood, and we aren't talking about the CTO of America, but of some other unrelated country called "Americasterisk" of which I was formerly unaware.
And yeh. I'd vote for amfM any day of the week!
A Man From Mars
Because he makes more sense than most politicians.
the BOFH? Did no one here write in a vote for him? I must confess that I forgot about him, but think about all the politicians (bosses) that could be made to disappear.
I'll let you off this time, you strangely surnamed* journo type, you. Cheers for the published quote tho.
Kudos to whomever voted for ammfM - he's a True maN 42 of the technical conservative People!!!111!1one
*yes, I realise the irony there...
Five write-in votes?
Your pie chart shows... 1+1+2+2... more than five.
+1 _4_ A Man From Mars
because PoliticianS Speak wiTh Forked tongUes
I still think it should be Dick Cheney
Maybe he could figure out a way to power teh internets by burning lawyer carcasses. I know several lawyers I'd like him to take on a short hunting trip.
Mentioning no names,but a certain Martian readed voted for all five candidates at once.
That just shows how far Martians are ahead of us, I guess.
