This Week's Topics


Comments from the Editor
This week's editorial is short. In fact, this is it! I'll be posting a blog entry in the next day or so to make up for this short editorial. The tentative title is "There is no such thing as privacy on the Internet." I'm still forumulating the post, but it is based on recent forum comments!

Until next week...

Brad!
