  1. Good piece, but as someone once said: “Just because I’m paranoid, doesn’t mean people aren’t out to get me!” You’re absolutely right that the Angry CIO has to change into something better, but what if most of the things he/she is angry about are actually true? My feeling is that once you become the Angry CIO, the only way to transition to something better is to do so at another company. It’s nearly impossible to become “un-angry” unless you change environments completely.
