Da Big House 2.0

In Florida... or Hawaii?
Corrections needs a new paradigm... designed to target recidivism and drive cost reduction via a bold, new approach: a continuum of care through public-private partnerships (PPPs). PPPs are simply government contracts with private sector prison operators or service vendors to provide a range of correctional services... Expanding the use of PPPs to create a continuum of care in corrections — one that follows offenders from intake, through prisons and into post-release services — would create a more integrated and coordinated system of programming and management to provide as ideal a programming continuum as possible to optimize outcomes while lowering costs.

Not often does "2.0" in the news refer to an actual "social network" of sorts rather than simple improvement.
