For years, the Department of Interior has lagged behind other federal agencies in the technology realm, colleague Steve Vogel reports in Wednesday's Post.

"Shoddy computer security has persisted for years and led to a federal judge several times to order the department to disconnect from the internet," Vogel reports.

But the department has just changed all of that with the launch of its YouTube, Facebook, Flickr and Twitter accounts. It joins several other agencies and departments that earned online makeovers this year.
