Since its debut, the TSA’s blog has received a lot of attention. Entitled, the Evolution of Security and edited by TSA Bob, it operates much like your usual corporate blog. Its main purpose is PR, which we think is a good idea. In the past there’s been a disconnect between travelers and the TSA. The blogging outreach is a step in the right direction.
For instance, the TSA recently responded to an issue concerning Apple’s MacBook Air. A few weeks back a passenger attempted to go through security with the Air, and because of its unique design and interior construction, Transportation Security Officers took extra time to examine the laptop which ultimately made him miss his flight. In response, the passenger wrote a post about his experience. The post was brought to TSA Bob’s attention and he responded via the blog.
