Drivel:  I have been learning a lot about niche publishing companies over the past couple of weeks as a result of my new project.  Starting a couple of years ago they started seeing double-digit customer conversion to their Internet based products, which continue to be horribly under-developed.  These businesses are scared of technology and have very little money to invest in it due to very low profit margins.  It is a very scary time for specialty publishers as the Internet consumes their core business.  Companies that have been around for over 100 years may suddenly disappear.
 
Drivel:  I am heading to LinuxWorld tomorrow in New York to comb the exhibit floor.  I will report back with any goodies I find.  One goodie I wish I were going to see is a UserLand booth featuring Radio on Linux.  Who wants Radio on Linux??  Me!!  Me!!  Me!!
 
Drivel:  Today was quite the day for Microsoft security releases.  They released two Windows patches, one Outlook 2002 patch, and a patch for Content Management Server.  This is the most patches released in a single day by Microsoft that I can remember.
