Is using TMF while officially at a U.S. military job a waste of taxpayer resources?

Would that we could use the TMF model in some of our work applications.

I've suggested to more than one person, including the head of our Computer Support Agency, that the way TMF does discussion boards is precisely the way we should be doing collaborative work every day. Can you imagine leveraging the power this tool in discussing military matters....?

Everything from pay problems, leadership challenges, and doctrine development could greatly benefit from leveraging the ability to include more folks than the military can put on one base at one time together to solve a problem.

I run a discussion group using Listserv, but it is nowhere as useful as the TMF tool. There are news groups apparently that one can subscribe to using Outlook, but these are obscure elements, and not widely understood by most users. Not to mention the fact that setting them up is one challenge, figuring out what's available another, and even getting the right folks up on line a problem.

I've suggested that the Army's Knowledge Online should strongly investigate TMF's model and then make it happen. Time's awaisting.
