Pomona graduate (and former Pomona CS Department systems administrator) Mikey Dickerson is back in the news with his recent appointment as head of the U.S. Digital Service with the charge of reforming IT in the government. An article from the August issue of Wired talks about his new appointment. What is most amusing is the video on Mikey attached to the article. Made by the White House, it seems to spend most of its time trying to convince potential employees that they don't have to wear suits (though he is shown at one point wearing a suit in a meeting with the President). He has compromised his values a bit though. He has gone from wearing t-shirts to work to instead wearing wrinkled shirts with collars. I think we can forgive him for that!
