BTW, I wrote about the CDF announcement in this piece:

***Microsoft gets the jump

Microsoft had the first announcement of the show. In a press conference that
I attended last evening, they revealed that they had been working on a
proposed standard called Channel Definiton Format, in conjunction with
Pointcast, Backweb and others.

I got a heads-up call on this last week, and agreed (wearing my software
developer hat) to support it. A no-brainer. Sure, we'll generate CDF stuff
in our Frontier-built websites. But I don't support the statement that they
made tonight. It's not the standard, or even a standard.

So much posturing. Netscape is going to do one. Marimba says Castanet is
emerging as a defacto standard. This is not a peaceful land. So much fear.
This is not the Internet anymore. This is not InternetWorld. It's Fear
