Forbes
Is the shutdown a cause for concern among CIOs, or would they prefer that everyone just shut up about the shutdown?

Why defense CIOs remain furloughed
Nextgov
Most civilian Defense Department chief information officers and their staffs remain on mandatory leave, a Pentagon spokesman told Nextgov, even though Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has recalled 90 percent of the 350,000 civilian workers furloughed recently. Hagel, in his recall memo, said the Justice Department determined that the Pay Our Military Act signed by President Barack Obama on Sept. 30 allowed the Pentagon to recall civilian employees whose responsibilities contribute to the morale, well-being, capabilities and readiness of service.

CIOs rake in the big bucks
Computerworld
It pays to be CIO — millions, in some cases. Take Filippo Passerini. He joined Procter & Gamble in 1981 as a systems analyst in Italy and rose through the techie ranks. Today Passerini is CIO and leads the company's global business services organization — a dual role that netted him $5 million last year. For CIOs who work at companies with familiar brand names, six-figure salaries are the norm. But salaries are just one slice of the compensation pie. The largest U.S. companies are compensating their senior tech leaders with bonuses, stock awards, and executive perks, too. Here are some of the standouts.

CIO success story: Agile development
Enterprise Efficiency
Michael Hugos, Center for Systems Innovation principal, writes: "If you've got enough money to do a project right, chances are you'll have more problems than if you don't. It sounds counter intuitive at first, but you'll see how small budgets and smart projects go hand in hand. As I began developing a cloud-based supply chain application for my new company, SCM Globe, there were many times I regretted not having the staff and budget I had in my last CIO position. But then at my last company I didn't have the money or resources that my competitors had. And both times I did well. I got things done faster than other people thought possible and for less money."
