SlipKnot Wins Two Ziff-Davis/PC Magazine Shareware of the Year Awards for '75

SlipKnot was named Winner in the Communications Software category
and
Runner-Up in the Overall Best category

Peter Brooks, SlipKnot's developer and President of MicroMind, accepted
the awards at the ceremony (Preston Gralla was Master of Ceremonies) in
Scottsdale, Arizona last night.

Those are the only sketchy details I have so far (from a voicemail
message); more to follow.

If all went according to plan, Brooks also urged the other software
developers in attendance to follow MicroMind's lead in donating
significant portions of revenues to nonprofit and advocacy organizations.
(10% of SlipKnot's _gross_ revenues go to the Center for Victims of
Torture and the International Rescue Committee.)

Peter will be back in NYC and online next Monday.

For '75 ??? I didn't know Slipknot was around in 1975 let alone the Web
itself.

I wish I could say I was just checking to see who's awake, but it wouldn't
be true. That old rule about sitting on things before you send them out
really is true. Still, FYI, only one other person noticed it.

Believe it or not there are those of us who can spot a typo, analyze
on-the-spot what was the author's intention, and then move on to the next
post. I don't feel it is my calling to point out each and every
spelling/grammatical error I run across. If I did I would never get out
of alt.fan.rush-limbaugh. You can rest assured Felix that your error was
detected (and duly noted) by a few more folks than may have responded.

Sure, the Web was around back then. But it only had five pages. And
each one took about 12 minutes to download at 300 baud. Little wonder
it took another 18 years for the Web to really catch on.
