  • South Carolina has added a widget to its Web site that allows residents to calculate the savings realized from using an online service versus standing in line and the effect of those savings on the environment.

    "The online services savings calculator demonstrates the benefit of e-government services to citizens and the environment and we hope it will encourage people to use e-government services when possible to help South Carolina be more green," said Barbara Teusink, Deputy Director of the Division of State Information Technology.

  • Seeking role models – not just benchmarks – is one way to find an upside in the downturn. It's counterintuitive, because downward spirals or losing streaks tend to push people and companies to withdraw and become insular – like individual depression that might cause people to stay in bed rather than face the world. With a little extra time, or as a pause between bouts of hard work, we can look at positive models, current or historical, to find inspiration. Book club organizers, now's your chance.

    A time of cynicism and mistrust can be made brighter by focusing on heroes. And because every story of success is also a story about persistence despite obstacles, the lessons can be applied to one's own situation, as a source of inspiration and practical tips.
