    Since Sliced Bread - the reaction - Communicate or Die
    What worries me the most is that these criticisms of Since Sliced Bread will further discourage any union, particularly one as successful as SEIU, from engaging the public through the Internet. Will other organizations look at this (admittedly limited) example of IT implementation and find 'proof that the openness only leads to messiness?' And, should this worry encourage labor/IT enthusiasts to point to the positive results of Since Sliced Bread, to show it wasn't a complete loss?
