a new version of Engaged!
Thanks to the unflagging efforts of Wendy Sadeh (wesadeh), John
Beattie (jcbeat) and Janet Harrison (tat), working together with The
WELL's Conferencing Team, we
are delighted to announce a major upgrade to The WELL's web-based
conferencing interface, Engaged!
Some of the highlights of the new version include compatibility with
Microsoft®'s Internet Explorer v4.0, many major bug fixes, and the
return of the spellcheck feature. The Engaged login page
received a face-lift, much to the relief of those who have had a hard time
with large amounts of pumpkin-orange.
For a full list of improvements and changes, please drop by the Engaged
conference for the official
post. Praise, critiques, and bug reports are all also welcome in the
Engaged conference, topic
In collaboration with PBS Online and their site, Hong Kong
'97: Lives in Transition, the WELL launched the Hong Kong
Conference. Lives in Transition featured regularly updated
diaries chronicling how these momentous changes affect the day-to-day
lives of a diverse group of Hong Kong residents.

moved out of the city to take up residence in "The Country" (birds
singing, bees buzzing, beautiful sunrises etc.) only to find that when
the wind blows the wrong way they get the smell from the stables or barns
next door... (continued)
