An Address Change for Clif Notes Newsletter

Due to the release of Google Buzz - the new sharing service from Google - I am changing one of the links to my newsletter page.

The old address,
will be busier now, so you may want to remove it from your bookmarks or feed reader. I plan to use the old address for posts to my Google Buzz account. (Sorry for any inconvenience!)

will only be updated once a month as I release my newsletter.

has not been affected and those who like reading my Notes at NetVibes can still do so.

Best wishes to you all, and you'll be hearing from me when I post my March newsletter.
