other events...

well, after a couple of years waiting, Microsoft launches Expedia (and I
win a book token at the launch of it!)

Carlton launches decent UK focused food site (yes, I think it is really
good and a welcome addition to the amount of sites out there)

Amazon gets out its cheque book and buys Bookpages, WH Smith buys
Internet Bookshop

Bunder gets married in New York and puts web site up for it!

And 'er...Demon gets bought by Scottish Telecom.
