New look brings focus to our mission

With this issue of Washington Technology, we launch a revamped
magazine that we believe will bring you more insight into the
people, companies and issues that drive the government information
Our mission remains the same: provide you with the news and information
that help you succeed.
When we made the transition from a biweekly magazine to a monthly one,
we knew that our approach in print had to
evolve. We decided that nothing was sacred,
and we examined each part of the magazine
and asked the critical question: What value are
One of the key changes is the Upfront section,
where we analyze the top 10 stories from
our Web site in the "Stories you are following"
feature. We're also providing critical insight through our new Survival Guide
feature, in which we ask industry leaders for their thoughts on an important
topic. In this issue, the topic is how to live under a continuing resolution.
At the front of the magazine, we're launching the "To-Do List." We identify
the critical events you should attend and the important people you need to
meet and provide shortcuts to vital reading material.
We know some of the things we try might not work over the long haul, so
your feedback is crucial. I invite your comments.Postscript: The credit for making this redesign succeed goes to creative director
Jeff Langkau and associate art director Sam Votsis.
