Being the President of the United States is not an easy job, especially when the country has the largest number of websites headquartered in its land and also has the largest tech companies in the world. But all this does not mean that President Obama should know tech, but one expects he would be better than what the ex-White House CIO has to report about his interaction with gadgets. According to CNET James Whittaker recently left Google.


He gave an interview to Computerworld and is displeased with the state of technical unpreparedness at the Oval Office. The world does not think as America does, but President Obama should think about what the world would think if he is not good in keeping things right in order at the Oval Office in terms of its technological updates and applications. But President Obama was very relaxed about the fact that in his first 40 days in the office, 23% of the time, the e-mail system at the White House was down.

Just imagine that almost quarter of the times that the American citizens wanted to correspond with their President, but received no replies because the e-mail system was not even working. As if this was not enough of a tragedy, more than 80% of the staff of the President used technology which was out of date. Take for example the fact that many of the staff’s desktops (not laptops, of course, not even laptops) had floppy disk drives.

The worse in terms of lagging behind technology, which reminds us all of the conditions that only third world states suffer from, and it is that in February 2011, the White House network had a nine-hour outage. The staff reportedly used fax machines to keep things running in terms of news. To step into a better decade, things since then have reportedly been improved. It is better to get rid of the old stuff by spending on new technology that will help the government communicate better and faster.

    Obama inherited that computer system from his predecessor.  If only Obama wasn’t such a frugal steward of the taxpayer money, he would have felt uninhibited in spending whatever money was necessary to get it all modernized.
