Well, I don't really consider GovExec to be part of "the news", but my project from last year is the subject of an article in the December 2004 issue of their magazine. The article is titled "Social Security computer system may reduce disability overpayments". I was the database technical lead/DBA and the architectural second lead on that project. It's one of the few instances where my work is publicly mentioned on a resource that can be found outside of the SSA firewall.
For those who now wonder exactly what my day job is, I work as a subcontractor to Lockheed Martin IT for the Social Security Administration through Compuware Corporation as an hourly employee. How's that for convolution?
