I just came across this report and thought it may interest somebody:
Thanks for the link.
DTIC once had an excellent searching function which, for example, allowed to look for recently added PDF files. Now its reduced to Google-type search, flooding the user with junk due to removal of all useful filters. They really seem to think that, instead of showing 100 “hits” (of which 12 are useful), presenting 10000 “hits” (still with only 12 useful among them) is actually “better”.
Things are degrading to the lowest common level - I see that happening everywhere.
Instead having people learn how to do soemthing they simply adapt to kindergarden level.
Good the report was of any use.
