"Network World on Identity Management" had an article today on "Helping 
NASA keep track of its employees, associates and visitors". NASA has 
"been working on it for a couple of years and looks to be making 
progress". Seems they have no central repository of data for all the 
personnel (employees, associates and visitors), and are looking toward a 
badging system, too. Maybe when we're done...

The article is copyright Network World, Inc. and was written by Dave 
Kearns at http://www.vquill.com

If anyone wants it forwarded directly, it is about eight paragraphs that 
distills to "we ain't there yet".

If anyone wants subscription info for the newsletter, contact me 
privately, and I'll dredge it out of the 20 lines of trailer info.
