    Ah the fascination with technology! The idea that we are not making inroads in our public diplomacy/strategic communications effort because we are not leveraging technologies enough or we are not Hollywood-like enough should be thoroughly investigated and not taken as a given to justify more funding and more reforms.

    The idea that the SAGE is going to the Annenberg school is to “get out of the Beltway” sounds disingenuous at best. Would it have anything to do that the State Department is not too keen on having a potential competitive organization inside the beltway? If that’s the case, it is a bad omen for whatever the SAGE group is trying to accomplish.
