  • The following is a highlight of a competitive analysis I did earlier this year when I was involved in designing software that would allow remote research teams to work together. While software is still a long way from replacing all in-person collaboration it's becoming easier for remote or mobile workers to stay productive and communicative with their team. Certainly the tools we have available today are a vast improvement over what I used when I first tried telecommuting 12 years ago!

    There are many articles out there covering similar if not exactly the same ground. Hopefully you will find some gems in mine.

  • We're looking for the best of the best in open and engaging government. The second annual Merit Awards program will recognize excellence in innovative implementations that aim to deliver a more efficient and collaborative government.

    The nomination process is simple – just tell us in 500 words or less how your nominee is helping to create a more open and engaging government, whether it's in interagency collaboration and information sharing, constituent interactions, or overall creativity. Nominees can be government individuals, agencies, or programs – from Federal Civilian, Defense, or State or Local government.

    The Adobe Government Assembly Program Advisory Group will review all nominations and select the winners, who will be recognized for their achievements in improving government efficiency at the Adobe Government Assembly in Washington, D.C. on November 3.

  • The Open University's website aims to achieve W3C WAI Priority 2 level. To support blind users and keyboard users most pages have a 'skip to content' at the top of the page which allows blind users to skip over the navigation links to the main content of the page.
  • One of the reasons given for this major change of teaching policy is the beneficial effect of grammar teaching on the children's writing; but this has inevitably invited criticism from those who believe that the earlier research has proved this effect to be a myth. The status of the research evidence is clearly an important issue, and even an urgent issue given that the policy is already being implemented (on a massive scale). What, then, does the published research really say about the effects of grammar teaching?
