Trauthwein, Associate Publisher & Editor of Marine Technology Reporter. Email: Having served the maritime, offshore and subsea industries with infor- mation for more than 20 years, it is undeniable that you form special kinship with certain people, organizations and entities. It?s human nature. Marine Technology Reporter?s kinship with the great State of Rhode Island stretches back to 2005 when we started publishing in this format. Not long after the  rst few editions rolled off the press, I received an invitation from Dr. Bob Ballard to visit with him and his students at URI to discuss Dr. Ballard?s Archaeological Oceanography Doctorate Program, a report featured in the January 2006 edition of MTR. Since then our relationship with the state has grown ever-stronger, with Rhode Island serving as our ?home away from home? on the occasion of four Ocean Tech Expo?s in Newport, and via continued interest and support from all corners of the state, starting with the Governor?s of ce, extending through NUWC, and including companies large and small, colleagues and friends. That?s why this month I am particularly pleased to share with you a special 16-page supplement, starting on page 33, entitled ?Discovering Rhode Island.? In my humble opinion,  rst-time MTR contributor (but seasoned business journalist) Patricia Keefe has done an outstanding job of delivering the essence of the state in a packed 16 pages of coverage, starting with a message from Governor Lincoln D. Chafee , and including insightful features on the state and its commitment to the ocean, from the perspective of defense, education, environment and renewable energy. When Rhode Island looks at the ocean, it views it with a keen and discerning eye, as it is the ocean that is the life-blood for much of the state?s prosperity. It examines not just the water, but the totality of the ocean environment, including all systems from below the seabed to high in the atmosphere, an approach which helped to foster the state?s Special Area Management Plan (SAMP) , which as Keefe describes is a ?ground-breaking, standard-setting, nationally lauded approach to ocean management with a focus on renewable energy.?
