7 federal IT bloggers worth reading

Move over Robert Scoble, David Pogue and Om Malik. The federal government has its share of high-profile bloggers. Among our favorites mentioned in this  year's Federal List are the following:

1. Robert Carey -- The Navy’s chief information officer brings enthusiasm and a deep understanding to his comments on how information technology affects the seagoing service.

2. Casey Coleman -- Innovation and the impact of new technologies, such as the smart-energy grid, are the meat of the General Services Administration's CIO’s posts.

3. Linda Cureton -- The CIO of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center takes an analytical approach to what is nevertheless an entertaining look at IT and the people involved with it.

4. Chris Kemp -- Kemp was inspired by President Barack Obama’s call for openness in government to start his NASA Ames Research Center’s CIO blog on what the Web will mean to his agency.

5. Chris Smith -- The Agriculture Department’s CIO has a brand-new blog and sees it as a two-way forum for dialogue between his office and the public.

6. Jay Bernhardt -- The blog is not about IT as such, but it gives the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s health marketing chief a venue to explain how technology and Web 2.0 will help his agency’s mission.

7. IT Dashboard -- Vivek Kundra, the federal CIO, uses this blog to explain the ongoing influence of the IT Dashboard, the government’s public tool for tracking IT program performance.
