2003 State-of-the-State

Governor Michael O. LeavittGovernor Leavitt will be delivering his State-of-the-State address beginning in just under an hour from now.  The speech will be streamed live in RealVideo beginning at 6 pm MST.  I will be carefully reviewing the Governor's proposals to determine if there are any modifications we need to make in our product development goals and plans to accomodate his vision which will continue to include a major emphasis on delivering egovernment services effectively.

Utah Film Commission unveils new website

The Utah Film Commission just completed their new website today.  Just in time for the internationally acclaimed Sundance Film Festival.  Part of the rollout, included a new online film company resource guide.  Future applications include online search access to the Commission's extensive location library.  Many movies have been filmed in Utah, including the 2003 release of The Hulk.

Alan Mather stepped aside earlier this week for a look at Noah Grey's outstanding photo collection.  Dale Meier has created an excellent online collection of Utah scenery.  Don't miss it.

Actuate and XML
Dave McNamee is the enterprise product manager for Actuate, a reporting tool that several agencies are using to deliver content to the web.  It looks like the Actuate server will deliver content in XML format which presents a number of interesting ideas based on the content that I know is already available through Actuate reports.  I am hoping that Dave and his customers are already looking at ideas related to this and thinking of new services that they can deliver to customers using this vehicle.  Once we have some working models, I would like to share them with the Utah product management council.

Utah Counter-Terrorism Coordination
Just met with the Utah Counter-Terrorism Coordination Council.  This group has made major improvements over the past year moving from discussion to action.  The next senior officials training will be held on March 13th, probably focused on some aspect of bioterrorism response such as smallpox.  Over 200 participated in the December training.  I presented an update on issues associated with identity theft, cybersecurity, and homeland security-related enterprise projects.  Scott Behunin discussed the eTeam implementation.  Over 300 licenses have already been purchased.  Federal and local agencies are still anxious to participate in an integrated incident management solution that crosses levels of government and jurisdictions.  A cyber-terrorism annex to the state emergency operations plan has been developed.  Thirty-nine acute care hospitals , as well as other care centers, will participate in an effort to share information regarding bio-terrorism training, communications, personal protective equipment, etc.  Advance vaccinations in the state of smallpox response teams will begin within the next two weeks.  It looks like the Salt Lake VA hospital may be designated as a decon center and will offer training and services to the community.  Lloyd Baker advised members to share information regarding the National Pharmaceutical Stockpile.  The stockpile is managed by the CDC which has also developed the Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response site which has webcast training available on topics like smallpox preparedness.

More on the Judiciary

The Federal Judiciary released its 2002 year end report on January 1st.  The Federal Judicial Center provides educational services to both federal and state courts and includes a wealth of historical information regarding the courts.

The University of Utah Marriott library has a useful government documents page where I found an interesting resource: The UN Atlas of the Oceans.
