  • In February I reported that the General Services Administration planned to shift the federal government's official Web portal, USA.gov to private servers, a strategy known as cloud computing. The move was expected to cut costs in half and serve as a model to other agencies considering making the leap to software as a service.

    This weekend GSA officially flipped the switch, with Martha Dorris, acting associate administrator for the GSA's Office of Citizen Services and Communication, describing Friday "a nervous day."

    A GSA official declined to comment on the transition today, other than acknowledging that the transfer has taken place. A quick check of the site on Monday showed it still up and running without any major suspensions of service, a credit to the new host Terremark Worldwide Inc., an information technology infrastructure company based in Miami.

  • "Come on Home," jointly sponsored by the Sacramento Traditional Jazz Society and the Ending Chronic Homelessness Initiative, will feature several of Sacramento's best blues bands an all star jam session at Turntable Junction from 10 AM to close on Monday May 25.

    Funds collected at the event will help to pay for "Homeless Connect," a one-day event that provides housing, legal, medical, dental, and counseling services for homeless people.
