Here is a comment we received from Dave at FCW:
Building and hosting an application that is already available and free is the epitome of old-school, and is only done because of the Federal Government’s need for control. In the long run, the cost of competing with free services and the cost of O&M will result in a crappy application and shrinking user base who has access to better without the mandatory limits that WILL be imposed by the government (think OUTLOOK mailboxes with maximum sizes in the govt, vs. GMAIL’s unlimited mailboxes!). Really, we should even ALLOW the government to do things that are already being done better in the private sector.
