Mississippi Enterprise for Technology Newsletter
September 2010
Greetings!
 

Welcome to a brand new version of the Mississippi Enterprise for Technology newsletter. Go ahead and kick the tires, so to speak. It looks and feels different, but our goal is still the same - highlight the activities of our organization.
 
Anytime you change things around - especially when it comes to a publication - it's always helpful to let your loyal readers know the thought process behind the change. Some will like it, some won't. And we welcome your feedback.
 
So here's the story behind all the changes.
 
Let's face it. We're all inundated with information. This is, after all, the information age. The problem for most of us is separating what we really want to know from the rest of the noise. Being heard is always a problem.
 
Months ago we began looking at how we communicate with our readers.
 
One of the most obvious changes we made was our decision to add a news feed, the Stennis Business and Technology Digest. MsET monitors and pulls together in digest form all the announcements and notices coming from NASA, the Navy, NOAA, the universities and any of the other organizations that call Stennis Space Center home.
 
The news is provided in a brief format, with links to the original source of the information so you can read more if you so desire. Think of the news feed as a super headline service - we summarize it, but leave it up to you if you want to get more information. If you haven't already done so, consider signing up for the news updates. They are delivered directly to your inbox whenever there's something new to report.
 
But that was just one new communication tool. Even before coming up with the news feed, we were taking a long, hard look at our newsletter to see if there was a better way. Some of you may recall that at one point we had an eight-page newsletter, but it was being produced on an irregular basis.
 
So we opted to change it to a four-page format and deliver it every other month. We've been doing that for several years now, and for a long time a printed version remained the primary means of delivering the newsletter.
 
But in an age where so many publications are going electronic, we eventually moved to a PDF version that could be downloaded. Now we've taken the next step and are sending the entire newsletter to your in-box.

Stennis Business & Technology Digest
rss
Stennis Space Center is a well know landmark on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, but not many people truly understand what really goes on inside the secure gates of the 1400 acre campus.
 
Originally established as a rocket engine test center for NASA, Stennis today, is one of the largest federal cities in the nation. Over 30 federal and state agencies as well as a variety of companies involved in a host of fields. The variety is surprising from space-related work to riverine warfare training and more.
 
Mississippi Enterprise for Technology (MsET) is a business incubator and technology transfer office located at Stennis. More recently MsET took on the additional job of playing a role in the economic development of Stennis Space Center. As part of this role, MsET wants to do what it can to tell the Stennis Space Center story. That means highlighting the accomplishments, successes and innovative work of the organizations located at Stennis Space Center. But in an age of information overload, it's a challenge simply to be heard above all the noise.
 
MsET decided to create the Stennis Business and Technology Digest, a  news feed communicating some of the activities that occur at Stennis Space Center, not just at MsET. This is in no way a bid to usurp the separate communications activities of the various organizations at Stennis. We see the news feed as a vehicle to insure those valuable communications reach a wider audience.
 
MsET monitors and pulls together in digest form all the announcements and notices coming from NASA, the Navy, NOAA, the universities and any of the other organizations that call Stennis home. The news is provided in a brief format, with links to the original source of the information.
 
You'll be amazed by the contributions made by Stennis Space Center that benefit the region, the nation and the world. Visit the MsET Web site Home page to subscribe to the news feed and increase your understanding of Stennis Space Center.
