NetObjects Team Fusion claims to be
"the first Web site building solution to recognize -- and capitalize on -- the roles different people play in developing large and complex business Web sites."
The NetObjects people have gotten demos of Frontier, from me personally.
Their claim is BS.
Clay Basket had many of these features, and was available well before Frontier 4, it
seems conservative to claim that we had the features NetObjects is boasting about well over a year ago.
We didn't stop there, of course. That's what "still diggin!" means.
Cooool! According to ZDNet, Gateway is going to make Amiga machines.
Help! I didn't know what I was doing and I created two IDs, one for each of two email addresses.

Former Apple ad exec Michael Markman comments on the ad.
Got Quicktime? Apple posted their TV ad to their website.
"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes,
the ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules and they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.
Because they change things, they push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy
ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."
