David Stegon was a staff reporter for FedScoop and StateScoop from 2011-2014.
All this week on FedScoop we'll be looking back at 2011 as we try to encapsulate what happened in the federal IT space the past 12 months. Yesterday, we took a look at some of our favorite interviews from FedScoop Radio along with some of the most profound advice shared on FedMentors. We'll continue with some other topics later today and tomorrow (sorry, no spoilers), before we head out for the break. So even while we're being vague with our upcoming topics, we still want to hear from you: What stood out for you in 2011?

The FedFiles post each morning at 6 a.m., but only if David's editor remembers to queue it up the night before instead of going to a Hanukkah party with his wife and completely forgetting. Then they get posted around 11-ish. Send items for submission to firstname.lastname@example.org and follow him on Twitter @davidstegon.
