  This Week - from Bob Woods, NewMedia Managing Editor

  In our weekly review, we take a look at a neato device that allows you to
  copy files between computers. Best thing of all? It fits on a keychain!
  Beware the company's claims of PC-to-Mac compatibility, though. We have
  that plus a bunch of advertising/marketing news and Microsoft's latest
  courtroom foray in the Business section.

  Also, Microsoft supports the separation of content and site design, with
  its new Content Management Server--we'll have a preview. Also, we'll look
  a successor to VRML, a cheap (read: inexpensive) Flash creation tool, and
  free MP3 streaming technology. All of that and more in Design/Development.

  In Technology, a new worm that's like Code Red is crawling across the Net.
  Problem is, it has a payload that's more destructive than Code Red -- we
  have details. We'll also play around with numbers, with eight keys to a
  "sane security strategy" and five tips for avoiding job burnout.

  And please keep in mind that now carries daily news--the spot
  to quickly find out What's Next on the Net...
