Challenge to Put Your Desktop Into the Cloud in Support of the Open Government Directive and Data.gov/semantic

I think we need a true cloud directive. There are two issues here: cloud desktops and semantic web. Cloud is within close reach and I'm all for it to happen ASAP. Semantic web is most likely going to be adopted (and standardized) first in the private sector. The Open Gov Directive doesn't include any real call-to-action for agencies to adopt the cloud. Federal CIO, please create a strong cloud computing directive!
