Let there be no doubt: Peter Orszag has declared war on the government’s computers.
“At one time, a federal worker went to the office and had access to the most cutting-edge
computer power and programs,” Orszag
said Tuesday. “Now, he often has more of both in a device clipped
to his belt.”
The White House budget director and self-professed nerd has said the same before (Maybe he’d like to reenact that
classic “Office Space” printer-busting scene?) His basic argument
is that government can cut costs and improve its overall performance if
it becomes more tech-savvy.
