Sunday turned out to be a beautiful day for a late winter walk in the woods with Carolyn. We walked a loop trail through the Wildcat Mountain Natural Area, south of Marshall, Va., now owned by the Nature Conservancy. After a fairly brutal straight-up beginning, the trail gently passed through rolling hills, along or across several dry stone walls, by a lake where were heard a symphony of young frogs, and near a long-abandoned house with its accompanying spring-house. Here's the track: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B67LY-HdXgG6eGEtMDREXzhqeWc/view

How can we close the #gendergap in ‪#‎STEM‬ fields when intellectual hubs like #MIT contribute to this woman's experience?
I am a senior MIT, a materials engineer, an honors student, and a woman. I also have been told hundreds of times that I don't deserve to be where I am. The idea that there was some sort of quota for women would be repeated to me over and over in the...

"If you want to be part of the big data ecosystem, you've got to be out in the open," says +NGA's +Chris Rasmussen in this +InformationWeek article by +David F. Carr.
Federal agencies have a hard time fitting innovation into their plans, let alone their budgets. Open data and open-source software help make innovation happen anyway.

As the NSA has been battered by revelations over surveillance, the role of geospatial intelligence—interactive mapping and satellite imagery—appears poised for primetime.

In case you missed it, this past year Marie Tharp was inducted posthumously into the +NGA Hall of Fame.
 
"This map marks both a scientific and an imaginative revolution. When it was published in 1977 by Marie Tharp and Bruce Heezen, two oceanographers at Columbia University, there had never before been a map of the entire ocean floor. Here, for the first time, was our planet’s hidden majority. It was as if the plug had been pulled and the water drained out, transforming the blank seascape into a complex landscape of plains and peaks, escarpments and bluffs. Here was the full extent of the Mid-Ocean Ridge, the mightiest mountain range on Earth, its 40,000-mile length making molehills out of more familiar mountains. You can see its serpentine curl through the Atlantic, round the Cape of Good Hope to the Horn of Africa and on through the Southern Ocean, up to 1,000 miles wide and two miles high."

Strategic communications and public affairs for defense, intelligence and technology
Introduction
I'm a strategy-focused leader, manager and planner with extensive experience in media and public relations, organizational and employee communications, marketing and public affairs in government and industry. I believe in integrated communications, strategic planning, and the critical role of marketing and positioning. I'm also an early adopter, innovator and advocate for the smart employment of new media and new information technologies in communications, marketing and PR.

In October 2010 I joined the U.S. intelligence community as a public affairs officer with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, where I now serve as chief of news and information services, with responsibility for media relations, workforce communications, public and intranet websites, social media and more. Also at NGA I was media relations team lead, chief of internal communications, chief of communications plans and operations, and deputy chief of the communications group.

Earlier I was in the corporate world, notably as director of communications, marketing and public relations at a business unit of General Dynamics. Before that I was a public affairs officer for the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Department of Defense, where my final assignment was to lead the department's press operations in the Pentagon.

Outside of work I like to listen to audiobooks, mostly classic fiction, while commuting, and I like to go on bike rides with my wife, mostly along old towpaths and railways in DC, northern Virginia and Maryland. I'm interested in journalism and the future of the news, and I'm interested in books and the future of libraries.
