[please forward widely]

Hi folks! Check out this special double issue from Open Media Boston. We 
had a slow week last week that we believe was largely due to the 
"disturbance in The Force" that was created by our crack Tech Editor 
Jesse Kirdahy-Scalia getting hit by a car while on his bike and badly 
injured. Meanwhile, this week sees his broken leg on the mend (fingers 
crossed) and a whole bunch of new material for us to send your way. So, 
here's hoping we avoid any future injury-related special double issues. 
Anyhow, enjoy ...
