Kirk's privately funded Web site: www.ronkirk.com

2000 technology expenditures: Approximately $15 million for technology improvements.

On drawbacks: "The obvious drawback is less personal contact. I mean, how many of us have logged on only to encounter server problems or have made a phone call only to end up lost on a voice-mail system? Nothing can replace a good old-fashioned face-to-face meeting to ensure that your message gets across."
