FirstGov Asks For Opinions
From the article, "The General Services Administration is turning to agency Webmasters for suggestions on how to improve the FirstGov governmentwide portal. Federal Webmasters received an e-mail request Dec. 13 to provide "suggestions and concerns with our search engine services" from the Office of FirstGov in GSA's Office of Governmentwide Policy...The questions include how important it is for FirstGov to support document types other than HTML, Adobe Systems Inc.'s Portable Document Format and Microsoft Corp.'s Word, and how important it is to have access to reports on metrics, such as the frequency of search terms, frequency of access by link and average relevancy of selected links.

Web Search--AltaVista
A Few Comments From AltaVista
This interview which is only attributed to "AltaVista UK" is a quick read. The question about AV's index being old does not seem to be answered. The rest of the interview focuses on using web search as a marketing tool and how AV hopes to start indexing "deep" web content. Like most things in the web search world only time will tell & actions speak louder than words.

Leadership--Book Lists
Source: For Managers (Harvard Business School Publishing)
"Required Reading"
This link takes you to an executive summary of a Harvard Business Review, December 2001 article by Barbara Kellerman. "...a list of works that form an exception to the general rule that leadership is inseparable from context. The titles on this list apply as much to leadership in business as they do to politics, as much to leadership in China as they do to the United States, as much to leadership in the twenty-first century as to leadership in the sixteenth. In a field of study that is almost obsessively particular, these books are universal." This executive summary contains the complete list.
