One of the regular hosts on IEEE Spectrum Radio on IT Conversations is Glenn Zorpette. He just won three awards from the American Broadcast Media for this article on Re-engineering Iraq. He also produced some audio from the piece which we featured on IT Conversations.
I enjoyed both the article and the show on IT Conversations. It's been one of the most popular shows in that series. If you missed it, go back and listen. I think you'll enjoy it enough to want to go read the article.
