Between the Lines
Thanks to all who participated in the Princeton
Trade Fair and the U.S. 1 Technology Showcase on August 28. The
registered a record number of exhibitors. More than 70 people came
to hear the talk by Ed Felten, who stayed long past the hour to answer
questions. Dave Aiello wrote his appreciation:
I‘m writing to tell you that Dr. Edward W. Felten’s
talk entitled "Whose Computer is It Anyway?" delivered at
the U.S. 1 Technology Showcase on August 28 was both enlightening
and entertaining. Dr. Felten spoke to a very diverse audience,
a cross-section of the local technology-using community. It was clear
to me that scientists, entrepreneurs, small business people, and
hackers listened intently, and got all of their follow-up questions
My company has recently invested time and effort in developing
that allows operators of third-party websites to create profitable
relationships with Amazon.com Amazon is encouraging companies like
CTDATA to build website tools that drive more business into their
virtual stores. Although our dealings with Amazon are generally
and profitable to us and our clients, there have been several
where Amazon has changed the terms under which our software operates
and the functionality of the gateways that they allow us to use.
U.S. 1 provided me with a valuable opportunity to make Dr. Felten
aware of the issues that my company has faced, and to ask him his
opinion of how affiliate relationships of this nature are likely to
change over time. Without this opportunity, I probably would not have
been able to get a direct answer to my question from one of the
figures in the emerging field of customers’ rights to intellectual

Sharing the Canyon
I appreciated the August 13 cover story on riding the
Colorado River by Bill Potter. However, in my opinion, the white water
and the rapids are but a meager part of a trip down the river. The
real "trip" is the majesty of the canyon itself. One can get
white water and adrenalin rushes in any one of a number of places
. . . but there is only one place you can experience what some Native
Americans knew as the sipapoo of mother earth . . . the Grand Canyon.
The various Colorado River Expedition companies, and your newspaper,
would do better justice to more potential participants and readers
with less emphasis on macho, by nurturing of spirit. My only other
recommendation is to experience the canyon with one or more friends…
like life, the spirit of such a journey, is one best shared.
An August 27 article on Dynamic Strategies stated that 30 employees
worked offsite at a client company. In fact it has 40 employees at
its office on Melrich Road, not at company sites. Also, the company
moved from Farmingdale in New Jersey, not New York.
