WiMax is sure getting lots of press.  Especially at CES.  Funny, they are 
talking up the Sprint roll out but Sprint has bailed.  Still smoke and 
mirrors compared to Canopy but I guess we might as well capitalize on the 
buzz.

While blathering on here, a business mentor told me long ago to contribute 
to all candidates for local office, not just the one you like.
I guess that applies to email lists as well.  Not saying I don't like WISPA, 
just never have taken the time to participate.  I believe I am a sponsor but 
on the home page I don't see any sponsor info.  I may not be looking in the 
right space.

In any event, I guess I will be on two lists now.  Any bets on what is going 
to happen to the "other" list?
