want wireless in Fulton County? ask him

Came across this story for my real job, but some of y’all might find it interesting: a State of the CIO story, from CIO Magazine, that starts with a profile of the dashingly named* Robert Taylor, Fulton County’s CIO. Excerpt:

Since becoming CIO in 2000, Taylor has implemented the county’s first IT security plan, updated and upgraded the county’s hardware and software, and perhaps most important, secured a seat at the county management tableĆ³the first Fulton County CIO to do so. But he constantly worries about the many people on his staff who lack project management and technology skills and suffer from the bureaucratic lethargy (endemic to government) that discourages innovation. He also worries about his staff’s age: A quarter of his 145 people will be eligible for retirement in the next two years. And then, there’s money.

* = those of you who have ever studied French with the help of the “French in Action” series know what I’m talking about.
