Trade shows are nearly all alike. Having attended two within a two-week period, I sometimes can't keep the events straight---did I see VRML demonstrated in San Jose or Atlanta? Despite their surface blandness, however, trade shows sometimes announce the leading edge of technologies that are soon to be in consumer hands. In the online world, technologies as well as many other aspects of human communication through networks, are changing rapidly. In this issue, we look in detail at the recent, Internet World conference. I also give a brief report on the Comdex trade show held in Atlanta recently.

This issue also continues other themes in which we are interested. Kevin Hunt critiques MCI's Gramercy Press web, a site that many presenters at Internet World and Comdex discussed in several ways--some praised its innovation; others critiqued its "hollowness."
