This past week may well have been the slowest week for CIO announcements since I started this blog last August.\u00a0 Here are a few blurbs and an update on a CIO I wrote about in November to end a quiet week:I heard through the grapevine that Joshua Levine recently retired as CTO of E-Trade.\u00a0 I haven\u2019t yet confirmed this with the company, but I do know that he joined E-Trade in October 1999 from Deutsche Bank, where he was managing director and global head of equities technology. Anybody want to share anything about Levine or E-Trade through the feedback mechanism? Gerhard Perschke joined PolyMedica, a provider of healthcare products and services for people living with chronic diseases, as CIO. He comes to the Woburn, Mass.-based company from Caremark.And finally, Mike Hugos e-mailed me in response to my November 30, 2005 posting about his whereabouts. (Ah, the power of the Movers & Shakers blog to connect far-flung CIOs.)\u00a0 He told me he parted with Network Services because his vision of IT was not in line with what the company wanted.\u00a0 He wanted to innovate; Network Services wanted to maintain the systems he put in place.\u00a0 Hugos is currently looking for a CIO position with a company that wants to create what he refers to as the real-time enterprise.\u00a0 Hugos has written about the real-time enterprise, which he says is not about technology per se, but rather, is about new ways of organizing work and empowering organizations based on the use of IT.\u00a0 In 2004, John Wiley & Sons published his book Building the Real Time Enterprise: An Executive Briefing.\u00a0 He\u2019s presently\u00a0working with some other CIOs on a new book called CIO Best Practices that will be published later this year by John Wiley & Sons. Look for more from Hugos in upcoming issues of CIO.
