Michael Wolff @ NYNMA/Wharton School of Business joint event & WWWAC Mtg

With next week promising to be another phenomenally phrantic Internet World phrenzy, this week was relatively quiet with only a few phat events scattered throughout. Okay, enough of the hip-talk... let's get down to business, which is exactly what Michael Wolff did on Monday at the NYNMA/Wharton School of Business joint event. Wolff, a lively and humorous writer, took a much more dour tone this September 28th night at the Citicorp building. His outlook for the future of the Internet was not hopeful. Meanwhile, in the spacious loft of Larry Aronson (of "HTML 3 Manual of Style" fame) and Lynn Thigpen (of "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" fame) was a WWWAC board meeting. I mention this as I am a board member, but am not running for the next year. This final meeting of inaugural board members conveyed to me that the next year's board will need lots of energy and commitment to take this trade organization to the next level of professional association status.
