As I mentioned in a previous message, I'm developing a relationship
with C|Net Central thru Simtel.Net, and this may result in Ada-related
info appearing on TV.  I think we want this, but am interested in
your comments.

The latest C|Net Digital Dispatch, their weekly electronic newsletter,
is up to 875,000 subscribers.  As you can guess, C|Net targets to
a very wide audience.  I find their TV show to be entertaining and
informative with current info, and maybe that's the kind of forum
we want to see Ada appear in as well (as opposed to just tech mags
and the like).  Try to make Ada become more of a house-hold word.

Below is information on this week's C|Net Central TV show, with
URLs pointing to where you can go to find your local broadcasts.
As I mentioned, it's on USA Network and others.

Your comments are invited,
Richard Conn
