Ready for the SOTU?

Yes -- State of the Union happens tonight... and it is going to be Webcast on whitehouse.gov -- a first as far as I know.

We have reporters who will be on duty tonight... and I will probably post an item or tw, depending on what he says. It will be interesting to see how much technology gets mentioned. I'm expecting that health IT, specifically e-health records, will get some mention... homeland security, I would expect... and we hear that R&D will also get some mention.

So we'll be standing by listening and get something posted tonight.
