Open source advocate is new gov Deputy CIO

 News today that Liam Maxwell has been appointed Deputy Government CIO, replacing Bill McCluggage.

Maxwell joined the Cabinet Office last summer, on an 11-month sabbatical from his job as Head of ICT at a Berkshire secondary school. Liam's belief in open source is well documented, and it's quite remarkable to have someone like that in such a senior position.

The Guardian says he will be retaining his responsibilities as Cabinet Office director of ICT Futures.
