Tech at Night: Can we please not have too many cooks spoil the cybersecurity broth. Just watch them on 3D Printing.
There are many consistent themes of the Obama administration, but one of the more troubling ones is the duplication of competencies. Just how many agencies do we need creating their own cybersecurity mandates? Yes, yes, Department of Energy wants to feel important. Who cares? Get this stuff under one roof.

With news this past week of Solyndra’s bankruptcy, firing of 1,100 employees and federal agents now raiding the homes of the executives, I thought it would be instructive for all to go back to where this began. Two years ago on September 4th of 2009, Vice President Biden was live via satellite to praise a little known solar company that was going to help America | Read More »
Obama Earmarks $1 Billion in Stimulus Money for Company in Illinois
The biggest earmark in American history has been doled out to a company in Illinois, the President’s home state, in the name of green jobs.
