Awesome! The article touches on something that I find interesting and a key to success in the future. We all experienced the Information Age, where the internet opened us to a world of endless information and pictures of cats doing funny things. Now, I believe, we’re entering into the Knowledge Age. The Knowledge Age takes all the information that’s out there and gets it to the right people in the right way. This doesn’t mean google is getting better, but tools are being used all over the workplace and even in your personal life. Apps are becoming a part of your life because they organize information in a way that’s fast and helpful.
I think government agencies will need to adapt to this culture. It may cost money up front but you will save a LOT of money in the long run. I was happy to read on YGL-LA’s twitter feed that the Air Force is buying 18,000 iPads. I’d be way more productive if I had one! Imagine an app that automatically does your time card? Or organizes everyone’s calendar so you know where your boss is and who he’s meeting with? Or an app to remind you take leave and go to the beach when the surf is up?
