Engaging that five-second delay
Michael Daconta, the driving force behind the creation of the National Information Exchange Model
(as well as GCN columnist
), has published a new book, "Information as Product: How to Deliver the Right Information to the Right Person at the right Time."
While we haven't applied our full powers to critically evaluating the volume yet, if it is anything like Daconta's previous work
, we're betting it'll be chock-full of insights valuable for anyone working in the data management field.

And while we're on the subject of colleagues making strides in the media, we're happy to note that former GCN and Washington Technology
reporter Patience Wait has joined the staff of Washington D.C.'s Federal News Radio WFED
(1050 AM). Besides bearing a name that always raises eyebrows, Wait is a consummate gadfly and social networker. And her reporting has brought both GCN and WT a number of esteemed awards
No doubt Wait's presence will enliven the airwaves. And also no doubt she and fellow WFEDer Tom Temin (onetime editor of GCN) are currently swapping tales about their halcyon days in print journalism.
