    NVTC Gives You the First Interview with Virginia's Secretary of Technology Jim Duffey


    Jim Duffey
    Secretary of Technology Jim Duffey recently sat down with NVTC to discuss the future of technology in the Commonwealth. His thoughts on the role of technology in state government, Virginia's research initiatives and other current issues are included below.

    Q: You have had a long and distinguished career in the technology industry. What do you see as the primary benefits technology can bring to state government?

    A: In addition to the potential for substantial cost savings and great gains in efficiency, I think technology, at its core, allows government officials to quickly get good, clean, and up-to-date information so they can make timely, solid, and effective decisions and deliver quality government services. I believe there is a strong correlation between the quality of a government's technology and the quality of policy decisions made by public officials.

    I also think technology is an essential tool in meeting the demands of our citizens for quality services. We have a sophisticated population in Virginia that expects and deserves a transparent, citizen-focused government. Virginia citizens and businesses would like to be able to access important information and otherwise interact with their government 24/7 and technology should allow us to provide that.

    Q: What initiatives of the McDonnell Administration should be of interest to the technology community in Northern Virginia?

    A: Throughout his campaign, Governor McDonnell emphasized many initiatives that I believe are of particular interest to Northern Virginia's tech community. His focus on innovation and job creation certainly resonates with the technology business community, especially given his emphasis on fostering an environment that supports and encourages young entrepreneurs who want to start new businesses, research and commercialization activities, and the aggressive recruitment of companies seeking to relocate or expand. His goal of making Virginia the energy capital of the East Coast should be of significant interest, along with his intention to establish Virginia as a "green jobs zone" and to make Virginia the hub for energy and alternative energy-related R&D activities. Also, his focus on STEM education, including his goal of adding over 100,000 additional college degrees targeting science, technology, engineering, math and other high income, high demand disciplines over the next fifteen years.

    Q: What are your thoughts on how to strengthen research activity in Virginia?

    A: We are fortunate in Virginia to have a lot of really good and active research programs within our universities. The challenge, as I see it, is to help connect the dots by identifying opportunities to leverage the relative strengths, expertise and investments housed within our individual research institutions in order to increase our competitiveness across the board. I think we've got to take an inventory of our various research programs and strengths and determine how the universities might best collaborate not only for their mutual benefit but also to meet the long term goals of the Commonwealth. Virginia recently launched an Innovation and Entrepreneurship Investment Authority under the Secretary of Technology's office which will create a strategic R&D roadmap for the Commonwealth. I look forward to working with the university and business leaders on that Board to evaluate the opportunities and determine the right course moving forward.

    Q: How do you keep abreast of tech innovations?

    A: I talk to the smart guys (laughing). I do what everybody else does. I read the media associated with technology and innovation. In my prior positions, people would come and actually present an innovation to me for implementation as solutions for customers. So I'm lucky in the sense that I've had positions where people have brought ideas to me they think could provide customers cost-savings and increased efficiency. There was a lot of push involved, although I do pull too. As Secretary, I plan to spend time in the community meeting with entrepreneurs and innovators to ensure the McDonnell Administration is on top of new and upcoming innovations.

    Q: What is your view of the current economy?

    A: It's tough and Virginia's budget is going to be a real challenge. Everybody has to do a little bit more with less. Government must ensure every dollar spent provides maximum value for the citizens. I think Governor McDonnell is a can-do, no-nonsense, focused governor who is well equipped to tackle the budget issue and at the same time, even within the context of the present economy, ensure that his technology initiatives focus on technology continuing to be a growth-engine that is creating jobs in the Commonwealth.

    And a few fun questions:

    Q: Three adjectives that best describe you?

    A: Sincere, Friendly, and Smart

    Q: PC or Mac?

    A: PC

    Q: Blackberry or Treo?

    A: iPhone

    Q: Technology you can't live without?

    A: iPhone

    Q: Technology you can live without?

    A: Robo telephone calls

    Q: Last Book you read?

    A: Good to Great by Jim Collins

    Q: Favorite Movie of all time?

    A: Bridge Over the River Kwai

    Q: Top vacation destination?

    A: Anywhere sunny and warm

    Bob McDonnell Sworn in as Governor: Legislative Session Begins

    On Saturday, January 16, on the steps of the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond, Bob McDonnell was sworn in as the Commonwealth's 71st Governor. During his Inaugural address, McDonnell spoke of building a "Commonwealth of Opportunity" with a focus on creating jobs and providing new educational opportunities for Virginians. The Governor also described his intention of making Virginia the "best state in which to start and grow a small business," and the need to reduce taxation and regulation that impede job creation. "Even in these tough times, we will have the foresight to invest today in ideas and policies that increase economic prosperity tomorrow," Governor McDonnell declared.

    In his address to the Joint Houses of the General Assembly on Monday, January 18, Governor McDonnell outlined many of his plans for the Commonwealth, including several priorities from NVTC's legislative agenda. These proposals include:
    • Significantly increasing the amount of money in the Governor's Opportunity Fund;
    • Granting an income tax exemption for qualified investments in technology and science startup businesses;
    • Ensuring that new businesses can get licensing processes and approvals complete in 48 hours or less and enhancing the effectiveness of one-stop business startup centers;
    • Maintaining investments in Virginia's Wallops Island Spaceport to aggressively recruit aerospace companies and promote space tourism initiatives; and
    • Increasing the focus on STEM education in Virginia's schools.
    As one of five transition co-chairs, NVTC President & CEO Bobbie Kilberg represented NVTC at several ceremonies throughout the inaugural weekend, including sitting on the Inaugural platform during the Governor's swearing in on January 16 and joining Governor McDonnell, Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, and the Transition and Inaugural Co-Chairs on stage at the inaugural ball that evening. She also was present at the swearing in of the Governor's Cabinet on Sunday, January 17, in the Senate Chamber. Cabinet members sworn in that morning include Secretary of Technology Jim Duffey, former NVTC Vice Chair and Board member; Secretary of Transportation Sean Connaughton, former Chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors; and Secretary of Commerce and Trade Jim Cheng, Northern Virginia technology entrepreneur.

    NVTC's public policy team is now in Richmond for the duration of the legislative session advocating for the needs of the Northern Virginia technology community. Stay tuned for in-depth coverage of the legislative session in upcoming issues of NVTC's TechPolitic e-newsletter. For regular updates on the top technology-related legislation and events in Richmond, join the NVTC Policy Forum group on LinkedIn.

    General Dynamics Kicks Off Equal Footing Foundation 2010 Robotics Event

    On Wednesday January 13, 160 students from the Equal Footing Foundation's six Fairfax County Computer Clubhouses participated in the Foundation's 2010 Robotics event hosted by General Dynamics. As part of the "kick-off" series for the Rockets and Robotics Club, the event was arranged by EFF Board member and General Dynamics Manager - Strategic Planning Yuctan Hodge to help get Computer Clubhouse students excited about careers in robotics and engineering.

    The program started with a brief presentation from James Lee Robotics team member Austin S. who highlighted the Computer Clubhouse Botball program and showed off the winning robot that took his team to the 2009 International Competition. Students then enjoyed a presentation by the General Dynamics Robotics System team of Barbara Lindauer, Josh Summer, and Eddie Mottem which included live footage of autonomous vehicles in action, robotics surgery and simulation and modeling animation. In addition to watching unmanned vehicles navigate through moving targets, students were able to see first hand how mechanical engineering is used in a real world application. A closing video showed students how aspects of gaming are used in connection with physics to create simulations prior to building a vehicle.
