Just created a couple of magazines on Flipboard last night, one on Digital Government - http://flip.it/9hHbv and a second one on Utah news (mostly from Utah government) called Utah Currents http://flip.it/uKbu2.  The new Flipboard release came out last night on iOS and will be available soon on Android.  It is a great way to curate content into a nice-looking easy to read and share magazine format.

Kudos to Michigan for their launch of the Michigan Cyber Range. Dan Lohrmann posted an article to Government Technology (http://www.govtech.com/blogs/lohrmann-on-cybersecurity/Introducing-the-Michigan-Cyber-111212.html) a few days ago telling about their new initiative.  Looks like it is based on DARPA's National Cyber Range.  Here's a summary of that, if you're not already familiar with it: http://www.whitehouse.gov/files/documents/cyber/DARPA%20-%20NationalCyberRange_FactSheet.pdf. States need to take cybersecurity very seriously, and in many cases still lack adequate resources to address this critical challenge.

We've been discussing ways to leverage big data in state government.  This report from TechAmerica has some suggestions, many of which parallel our existing ideas, some of which we should act on soon.  Here's the URL from IBM:

Wanna Win a Brand New iPad Mini?!?

Well, I've got one right here in my hands that we'll be shipping to one of you on Friday!

You remember when I did the Top Weather Apps shootout a couple weeks ago?  Well, we named +WeatherCaster  the top app, and it caught their attention (as these things often do). :)  They were pleased and surprised, and in celebration they gave us an iPad Mini to give to one of YOU!

Entering to win is simple!

1) Download the free app for your iPad! Trust us, it's awesome! ==> http://geekbeat.tv/weatherapp
2) Make sure you have +WeatherCaster in a Google+ circle.
3) Publicly re-share this post in order to enter to win!

See how easy we make it!

If you didn't see the episode yet, watch below!

By the way, WeatherCaster is only for US weather, so this contest is limited to the US. Sorry to all my international friends!  I still love you, you know that, right? :)

And one last, little, tiny detail.  The lawyers made us link to the official terms.  If you need some lite reading before bed, here you go:  http://geekbeat.tv/minithanks

This sounds a little like the Utah.gov Master Data Index and the 1300+ transactional services that we index in a tool that also indexes our open data files and social media feeds. I need to learn a little more...
