It looks like the Obama administration's ambitions for government adoption of cloud computing are gaining momentum and definition. White House chief information officer Vivek Kundra will hold a news conference Tuesday in Silicon Valley to "outline his vision for a new federal government cloud computing initiative." The event is being held at NASA's Ames Research Center at 10 a.m. Pacific on Tuesday, Sept. 15. The event will be streamed live on the NASA TV web site.

The event will be attended by NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver and "top Silicon Valley information
technology leaders." Who might be there? The NASA Ames facility is around the block from the Googleplex, as well as Microsoft's Silicon Valley office.
