It's official, Amver is now blogging! We wouldn't be here without the inspiration of several bloggers like the Unofficial Coast Guard Blog and Admiral Allen's blog. There is so much to talk about and share. To start with we will be posting our recent press releases on the blog.

There has been considerable coverage of Social Media, Web 2.0, and the Federal government's use of these media. Amver's use of Facebook was covered in both Federal Computer Weekly and on Federal News Radio. Amver has also branched out and is using Twitter.

We will also share stories of interest on current maritime issues such as the Arctic (Lloyd's List subscription required), safety, and other matters that relate to Amver.

Feel free to leave comments and feedback. Our hope is to make this informative and lively.

Amver has relied on technology from its first vacuum tube computers to today's automated vessel messages received from Polestar. Blogging is the next step forward and we invite the shipping community to join us.
