It's like I am living 2 lives now. One with my
regular relationship (4 months now) and the other with my
co-worker/aerobics friend. They seem mutually exclusive right now
yet somethings got to give. But both are incredible.
Do I give up the porche or mercedes? I'd like to
keep them both, but I don't have a 2 car garage and
the insurance would kill me. As long as I drive one
at a time, it seems fine. But sooner or later, it's
going to storm.
My co-worker knows about the
other and I know about hers but each of our other mates
don't know about us. Plus, after this weekend, it is
awefully hard to sit in a meeting with her and not
mentally wander off and end up with a chubby. Damn women.
They control our minds!
I was just looking through some notes I took last
year (6/13/98) on INKT just before the IPO. I was
interested in the IPO, but didn't buy because the shares
started trading about 20 points above the offer (which I
wasn't privy to), if I remember correctly.

Beautiful! Now the real battle begins --
independence or hanging out with a chick you dig.
just coming off a two year relationship, so I vote
independence. Of course you could have the best of both worlds
if she agrees with me. Problem is chicks don't think
FINDING MENTION of science or technology on the Web is a
little like finding a plate of pasta in an Italian
restaurant -- you can hardly avoid it, even if you try. But
not all restaurants are created equal, and neither
are Web sites devoted to science and technology. All
may have their place in the cornucopia of cyberspace,
but only the best earn a place on our annual Best of
the Web list. As expected, the subjects that our
selected sites cover are as diverse as ever. Still, things
change. The Web is not merely growing broader, it's
growing more lively.
NEW YORK (CBS.MW) -- It's an energy stampede that
seems to have no end in sight. Crude futures closed
above $23 a barrel Thursday after a key petroleum
industry report that showed inventories fell last week
twice as much as expected, pushing oil prices to their
best level since February 1997. The American Petroleum
Institute said supplies of crude fell 5.97 million barrels
to total stocks of 311.7 million barrels during the
week ended Sept. 3. That sizable drop in supplies
compares with expectations of a 2.5 million- to 3
million-barrel decrease. On the New York Mercantile Exchange,
October crude closed up 54 cents to $23.20 a barrel, its
best level since February 1997. Things got even better
Friday, as the contract closed just shy of $24 after
comments from officials in Venezuela reinforced the
market's belief that OPEC will maintain its vigilant stand
against a production glut.
Net stocks: They still got it
(CBS.MW) -- Net-stock fever is rising again, and just when
some folks were whining that the investor community
had gotten bored with watching upticks, downticks and
other minute-by-minute market minutiae on their
computer screens. Fresh news on Friday that the threat of
inflation is waning helped to fire up a broad-based rally
in the Internet sector and light up the Web's chat
rooms. Day-traders made a boffo go of it on Yahoo's
site. "I'm in! Can't resist!" said one trader.
"Dreamers are out in force," said another. TheGlobe.com
(TGLO: news, msgs) will be "$50 by year-end" was yet
another overzealous colorful comment ringing aloud in the
chat rooms. That positive chatter helped to drive
shares of EBay (EBAY: news, msgs), TheGlobe.com (TGLO:
news, msgs), Inktomi (INKT: news, msgs) and Yahoo
(YHOO: news, msgs) on Friday. And this reawakening? It's
not just for cyber-trading market freaks, either.
Even dorky analysts -- albeit some of the bearish --
are picking up on it. "Yes, momentum is back," said
James Glickenhaus of investment firm Glickenhaus & Co.
"But all it's doing is keeping these stocks from
falling to the levels where they should be."

SAN DIEGO (CBS.MW) -- Internet
message boards are huge electronic bathroom stalls where
anyone can post whatever they want without any
accountability. My goal has been to add some credibility and
standards to the stalls. I don't believe in censorship, but
I favor accountability. If you say something on a
message board, you'd better be prepared to back it up
with facts or I'll pick it apart. This is what irks my
critics. My censorship from a major online message board
for petty and capricious reasons highlights the need
for a more just and credible forum. If one has to
walk on eggshells in Internet boards for fear of being
terminated or censored, then the boards will ultimately be
controlled by those who have ulterior motives. They will run
the boards without fear of being questioned or
challenged. If this happens, we can write the Internet off as
an electronic billboard controlled by those with the
