NASA has appointed the CIO of California's Ames research centre as a new agency-wide CTO in charge of "leading IT innovation" across the space bureau.

Chris C Kemp will be NASA's first Chief Technology Officer for Information Technology. According to a NASA statement:

Kemp will be responsible for the agency's Enterprise Architecture division and for introducing new and emerging technologies into IT planning and implementation. Kemp will formulate and oversee a new CTO Council with participants from NASA's mission organizations and field centers. The council will foster creative ideas and nurture innovation within NASA's IT organization. One of Kemp's primary focuses will be determining ways to make NASA's IT environment more energy efficient.

"We are lucky to already have Chris at NASA, and this move will leverage his creative talents and energies," said the CIO di tutti techi of NASA, Linda Cureton, mildly well-known for her eccentric bloggy musings on such topics as "Servant Leadership". She has described herself as "just a poor struggling CIO trying to hold together an email infrastructure with duct tape and PVC pipe".

According to NASA, Cureton's new right-hand man Kemp has an illustrious IT pedigree:

Beginning in 2007, Kemp served as chief information officer at NASA's Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California. Before that Kemp was Ames' director of strategic business development and helped forge partnerships with Google and Microsoft. Prior to joining NASA in 2006, he helped create the online community Classmates.com, the web-based vacation rental platform Escapia, and the first online grocery shopping platform for Kroger.

Cureton has also said on her blog that the reason Kemp prefers to be known as Chris C Kemp is the high internet profile of this individual. ®
