Tysons Connector to Cease Operations Dec. 30

From Virginia MegaProjects:

ALEXANDRIA — The Tysons Connector - the free midday shuttle bus service in Tysons Corner - will operate for two more weeks with its last day of service Dec. 30, 2010.  After one year of operation, ridership was not sufficient to meet minimum goals needed to viably continue the service.

Tysons Connector began in November 2009 to serve area businesses, residents, shoppers and visitors within Tysons Corner.  The service was launched to provide travel options within Tysons during construction of the Dulles Metrorail project as part of the project's comprehensive transportation management plan.

Until Dec. 30, Tysons Connector will continue to operate at 10-minute intervals between 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday within Tysons Corner.

After Dec. 30, those riders who use the Tysons Connector may be able to get around Tysons Corner by using the following routes:

Wiki Leaks and Whistleblowers: Why Private Information Goes Public

Ask an average person to name a whistleblower and they’re likely to think of ‘private citizens’ like Erin Brokovich, Karen Silkwood, and Jeffrey Wigand or journalists like Carl Berstein and Bob Woodward.  These red, white and blue American whistleblowers have been portrayed in Academy Award-winning movies as admirable people who had the courage to reveal wrongdoing in workplaces and government agencies in a spirit of justice.  

But are there other motivations that drive people to release sensitive documents and information that bring down companies and governments?  I believe the answer is yes.  Fame is certainly a motivator...and so is vengeance.  Employers in the private and public sectors that stubbornly refuse to acknowledge the link between employee engagement and corporate security are likely to find themselves the victims of leaks.
