Letter: Network restrictions would stifle innovation

Regarding “DOD considers prohibiting personal use of networks”: I would like to see much more information on this topic. Innovation and creativity begin when government employees can see what industry and other agencies are doing to improve processes. Search engines are critical in obtaining information. Additionally, researching parts and components is also required.

I would like to see how government innovation and creativity would not be stifled.
