NASA's Communicators Are Not Communicating

Editor's note: Try opening this link to Communications Planning: on the NASA HQ Organizational Structure page. I can't seem to get it to work. I tried going to but that won't work either. Not a good sign for a "communications planning" page ... unless those to whom the communicating is to be done are not supposed to see the plans ...

Editor's update: sent me an email telling me that this is an internal website only. Duh. Silly me, I just clicked on a publicly available link on the publicly available NASA Headquarters home page. Here is an idea of what is actually on this page. They call this the "Communications Toolkit". It is obviously not ready for prime time (lots of "tools" are missing). I'd hide it too. I have stripped a lot images off - and many of the links do not work outside the NASA web portal (I guess). I'll bet that anything titled "Elements of a Compelling Story" on a NASA website must be a truly mesmerizing document ...

Editor's update: The link is now gone (at least as the public is concerned).
