ooh, I hate to tell you this, but Ed Anuff, who spoke at the conference,
was laid off as well.  as the Director of Product Development at Wired, he
was perspicacious enough to choose Inktomi as a partner from the beginning.
we owe him a large debt for all he's brought to HotBot as well as NewsBot.
I am sure his vision will be missed at Wired.
