Pigs, Baboons, and Humans
Progress is being made in cloning pigs that don't have the genes that make humans reject pig tissue.  The idea is that pigs will be able to provide a tremendous source of organs for humans.  First, however, they want to try the transplants on baboons to see how it works.  That makes for an interesting triangle.

Campus Tech Merger

Universities in Missouri are merging their IT divisions.  The merger is expected to save $5 million.  This is a good thing.  Eliminate duplication in administrative systems.  We have done a little of this in Utah by having a fleet management system that supports all colleges and universities, in addition to all state agencies (over 7500 vehicles).  We are also making progress towards a common facilities management system.  Dixie College and Southern Utah University (SUU) are currently in the implementation stage of this system that is accessed over the internet. Some university administration systems are shared through the Utah Board of Regents.  There are still many potential opportunities in this area.

Utah eGovernment News

Last week, Cathilea Robinett of the Center for Digital Government met with state and local officials in Salt Lake City at a session entitled "Building Electronic Government for a New America.  She gave an excellent presentation on egovernment from A to Z.  Phil Windley expounded on his vision for web services and "federated" services.

Phil summarizes yesterday's initial meeting of the ACIO team.

Last week, we posted the September issue of Capitol Connections, which included a realvideo message from Lt. Governor Olene WalkerAdditional tech news is online as well.  We've only had about 6,000 unique readers in the past week.  Somehow, we need to reach the rest of Utah's employees.

Dave McNamee added this post on New Mexico's portal plans.  Looks like they are planning a lot of the same things we are.

The Utah Technology Alliance is having a breakfast presentation on the value of web services on Friday and the Utah Computer and Technology showcase begins today at the Salt Palace.
