Well, this might have been blisteringly obvious to some of you (hi Dan!), but
I'd never heard of above the crowd, or more importantly, the only publication
AltaVista found when I searched for abovethecrowd.com: Digital's own
fortnightly Rapidly Changing Face of Computing. Excellent digest, highly
recommended. The current issue leads with "networking as a utility service"

VERY good stuff. Kudos to Jeff Harrow.
