The new site for the eDG is up.  It looks very nice with a good overview of the Utah Master Directory currently being featured..  There is a meeting for the eDG group this afternoon at 2:00 pm.

Today is GIS Day 2003.  Exhibits are set up in the Capitol rotunda.

Wayne Harper presented his Internet Privacy bill to the Public Utilities and Technology interim committee this morning.

I don't understand why anyone involved in the Teragrid project is still using Telnet.  The New York Times reports that Europe has surpassed the US in refined grid computing.  This is led by the EU-sponsored Datagrid project.

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) today issued the Digital Access Index which rates countries in five areas: infrastructure, affordability, knowledge, quality, and usage.  This is one of the few international technology surveys that drops the U.S. out of the top ten.  The survey reveals that Iceland, which they rank third overall, has the highest percent of internet users in the world.  Sweden and Denmark rank first and second in the index.

Rep. Brad Dee's E-911 bill was supported unanimously by the Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice committee and will be forwarded to the 2004 general session as a committee sponsored bill.
