I've just received an invite to an AIIA presentation on AGIMO's 
implementation of the Federal Government's ICT reform program.

The guest speaker is John Higgins CBE, Director General - Intellect

The bit in his biography that caught my eye is:
    John has an honours degree in Mathematics from UEA  
    and a Diploma in Accounting and Finance from the
    Chartered Association of Certified Accountants.

I'll ask the (rhetorical) question again:

What is it with the IT industry that we have so many people in senior 
positions in industry bodies, vendors and user IT departments with no 
formal qualifications in Electronics or Computer Science?

And if anyone is interested, Ann Steward of AGIMO holds a degree in 
Applied Science from the University of Canberra.
