"NSA joining social network for intelligence analysts" (Baltimore Sun)

Mark Oehlert

So the upshot of this article is that the NSA is joining an ongoing effort called "A-Space" within the intelligence community to share info. Its big news because the NSA is just a wee bit on the secretive side - a friend of mine who works there, never had business cards as a minor example. Beyond the fact the freaking NSA is learning how to open up and yet we still have non-classified government organizations and corporations who act like the use of these systems wold compromise their HR databases (BTW, if the use of these systems will do that - you need to hire a new IT department).

Writing & Grammar: Then Versus Than

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

chill wind brushed the treetops, (then/than) the sun rose. by Jennie Ruby. People often confuse the proper use of then and than. Pronunciation is likely the culprit. In the mid-Atlantic region people tend to pronounce both of these as "then." " Here's the difference, with a quick memory aid: then rymes with when  and is always about time: When did he make the onside kick? First they made the touchdown, then he made the onside kick. Than is about comparisons: He is taller than I am. The Cadillac is more expensive than the Camry. When was she taller? Back then.
