Quick, The Alka-Seltzer!

August 12, 2003
Updater on Duty: Michael Bischoff

The Roundtable was supposed to be posted on Sunday, but a nasty cold afflicted me over the weekend, thus delaying my getting this uploaded. My apologies.

As for this part of the site, Googleshng and I will be taking over here full time. So, for those of you wondering if Goog was going to disappear from the site, worry not, his new home is right here. Our new plan is put these together weekly, which will be quite a task. Therefore, we will probably be splitting the duty of updating the roundtable on a bi-weekly basis. Of course, that's just pure speculation on my part, but something I'll probably put forward before 'da boss. As part of making the Roundtable a weekly gig, we want to make this a true Interaction section. Therefore, we encourage you, the readers to submit to us an application to join the weekly discussions as a guest panelist, or submit your own topics for us to discuss! There will certainly be other things revealed in the coming weeks about how we'll be handling this section, so hang tight for now.

Finally, if you skipped this part and are wondering why Cortney seemed to disappear, it's because we were discussing this late into the wee hours of the morning, and she needed to sleep. That's why you won't see any closing from her. So, onto the Roundtable!
