I’ve been terrible about posting our FCW-Federal News Radio show programs here. I haven’t posted one since July 22 when we had a fascinating discussion with Chris Rasmussen, one of the people behind Intellipedia. I’ll try to catch up in the coming days. But today’s show is fun because it features the 2008 Rising Stars. No, not all of them, but we have a number of them.
For those of you who don’t know about it, this is the third year of the Rising Star awards program. As I noted in the introduction to the Rising Star package in the Aug. 18 issue of Federal Computer Week magazine and as I discussed on Federal News Radio yesterday morning, this is the third year of the Rising Star awards program — and I love this program. I love it partly because of how it started — not by me, but rather it was a group of young people who came to us and suggested that it was a good idea. But it is also unique.
