Several important things happened in the world of open government and technology this week. Let me know which articles should be added to the list by commenting below!
- The U.S. has a new Chief Information Officer. Alex Howard has this write-up about it and here’s Nick Judd’ post on it.

- Here’s an article on “How Governments Are Developing Better Performance Metrics“.
