Dear Colleagues: It has been a unique and fulfilling pleasure working with the Digital Government community these three and a half years, but as with federal grants, all good things must come to an end.

The DGRC communications office will continue its work, as will the Digital Government Research Program. However, my last day is Friday, July 15. After that date, I encourage you direct questions about DG research and funding to . I can be reached after that date at my permanent home address, .

While so many of you have made my job enjoyable and very fruitful I would like to extend special thanks to a few people for their support and encouragement - to Yigal Arens, Valerie Gregg and Eduard Hovy of USC Information Sciences Institute, and Larry Brandt of the National Science Foundation - thank you. I've learned a lot and greatly appreciated your camaraderie.

To everyone I've met in the DG community over the years - thanks for your patience, insight and devotion to this discipline. I look forward to tracking the continued growth and progress of the DG community as you continue your work.
