groupware evangelist. He has been an independent consultant, was BYTE 
Magazine's editor-at-large, executive editor and Web maven, and long 
ago developed business information products for Lotus. In June 2002 he 
joined InfoWorld as lead analyst. He also writes a monthly column for 
the O'Reilly Network.
