April 10, 2009 @ 09:55 AM | By Kathy Burger

Rarely is the response to a new government initiative a unanimous round of "thumbs up," but so far that seems to be the case regarding yesterday's (April 9) announcement that The Defense Department and the Department of Veterans Affairs will collaborate on building an electronic database of administrative and medical information for U.S. servicemen and women.

Is Twitter a Paper Tiger?
April 08, 2009 @ 11:26 AM | By Nathan Conz

I've mentioned this before but... I'm not sold on Twitter. At best, I think it's a great idea that's been poorly executed. You want to know why a whole host of independent Web sites have popped up offering Twitter-related services? Because the capabilities of Twitter itself are so sparse.
