Could your town's website get a date?

An interesting article mysteriously appeared in my in box this morning (perhaps Glenn?) It's exciting to see how much experimentation is going on among local and state government folks. In Missouri, they created a job kiosk in Second Life (virtual world). Wonder what kind of applicants it's attracting? In Delaware, the human resources director fretted that her town's website would get very few dates on Match.com, so they redesigned the site.

The article sue posted is good. And the State of Vermont is ripe for a major overhaul in IT systems. There is little consistency from one agency to another, and some of the biggest systems (Human Services) are DOS based and date back to the early '80s!
