LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T his week we take a look at teaching history with Austin Chronicle's Michael Venture in "Letters at 3AM" , as well as last year in the news with Weekly Alibi's Norman Solomon in "All the News That's Fit to Stink."

Following that up, we take a look at technology from three perspectives. First off is a look at promising new technology in "Net New Year" with Nashville Scene's James Hanback. The Scene's Walter Jowers then gives us a unique preview of the Y2K crisis. Finishing out tech news, Austin Chronicle provides us with a look back at some interesting cyber-events from 1998.

Tucson Weekly's Jeff Smith wraps up this week's News & Opinion section with his New Year's resolutions in "Resolved: Get Out More."
