Judge Swank: In his own words


We’d like to thank Caspio Inc. for helping us put this data on the Web. The company makes it easy for newspapers and other organizations to create online database applications. (The Richmond Times-Dispatch, for example, uses Caspio to give the public access to databases such as public employees’ salaries.) Caspio has given the VCU School of Mass Communications a complimentary academic account. That gift will help students get experience with the database application tools used in today’s newsrooms. It also will help us open newsworthy databases to the VCU community and the general public.
