Rebroadcast 24 October 2000

much. I'd be glad to do it.

Carol: And I'd like to really thank you for spending the last hour with us. I've learned a lot. And I'd encourage anyone who's got questions or who would like to know a little bit more about this cyber-economy, cyber-mapping of the earth, to take a look at Howard's new Web site, which is absolutely phenomenal. And the address is www.metricnet.com. And as he said, there's an update almost monthly of information about where we fit, where the U.S. fits, where other countries fit, in the global economy. You can also email Howard at [email protected], and he's very good at returning emails. This has been a really exciting first show for me, just learning about all the things that are going on. In terms of the November election, will things change in terms of what you're doing, Howard?

Howard: Well, I'll probably stop my national election poll and go on to something else. But that's one of the things on metricnet. But no, things won't change in terms of what I'm doing. I think the issues of cybergeography, the digital divide, and global competitiveness transcend any temporal election.

Carol: I'd like to again say thank you very much. I think that this has been a wonderful first show. It's exceeded my greatest expectations. And I'd like to thank you very much for being a part of that. And I hope we can get you back in, sometime I would say in early November. If any of our listeners want to give feedback in terms of the stuff that we've been talking about or topics for the show when we get Howard back, you can send email to [email protected]. And for other shows in the future, you can also click on renaissanceradio.com, or we are going to be adding a link to our qualityplustech.com Web site so that you can hear streaming audio from anywhere in the country. So if you've got colleagues and friends who are interested in e-talk, to talk about information technology, please tell them. And we've got kind of one final remark from Howard Rubin. Howard, would you like to leave us with any final words?

Howard: Carol, thanks for the opportunity. I would say, with all the connectivity and the global economy we talked about, and getting people together through digitization, the issue all your listeners should think about is how can you increase connectivity, actually deal with digital divide issues, and preserve cultures without homogenizing everything into one big sort of leveling Web mass?

Carol: I think that's great food for thought as people are driving home in Phoenix and Providence, Rhode Island. And I'd like to invite our listeners to our live show next week, where we're going to have Heather Winward, who is an executive coach with us. Heather does a form of executive coaching, where she dissects teams based on their handwriting. So we're going to be actually having a live show where you can phone in to the 1-866-277-5369 toll-free line. Again, that's 1-866-277-5369. Once you get on the line, you'll be able to fax in handwriting samples to Heather Winward, and she'll be able to analyze them, somewhat like a psychic hotline. So I'm looking forward to hearing from many of you this week with your feedback through jstone, and to talking to you live next week and finding out a little bit more about our team of listeners. We will have the fax numbers available at the beginning of next week's show. Meanwhile, keep those toll-free numbers in mind
