October 1st of 2013 marked the U.S. Government’s start of a nation wide shutdown for many services. It’s like the entire nation was called in to see Donald Trump on a bizarre episode of “The Apprentice“.
It’s a very serious thing. Lots of people have gone home and I feel for them.
But at the same time it’s worth seeing what can be done with mobile technology to save costs. Forbes reports how Missouri is doing just that to cut costs by about $500 million.
It begs the question, when the shutdown ends, will it be necessary to put offices back to their old funding levels, or can this kind of approach make that un-necessary?
