Noveber 8, 2011 -- Host John Gilroy is joined by Darren Ash, deputy executive director of corporate management, at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

During the first half of the program, Ash will talk about how the NRC is incorporating social media into its web site.

The agency is using YouTube videos to get information to citizens about nuclear disasters.

It saw how citizens and journalists used short, informative videos during the earthquake crisis in Japan, to send out information on nuclear concerns.

Ash is also the president of AFFIRM, and during the second half of the program he will talk about a recent AFFIRM luncheon that focused on the much misunderstood concept of agile software development.

Federal requirements can best be described by experts with specific federal experience in flexible software development.

In this particular case, the audience learned about experiences from agencies like the GSA, the FBI, and the DoD.
