Richard Wiener,
Editor- in-Chief

Dear Readers,


I welcome Lakshmi Prayaga back for her next regular column after having contributed a Guest Column in the Sept/Oct, 2007 issue. I welcome Raymond Wu from IBM with his Guest Column. In addition we have contributions from our regular columnists John McGregor, Douglas Lyon, Dave Thomas, and Won Kim. Writing a regular column is difficult work, especially when doing so while traveling. I greatly appreciate the loyalty and dedication to our publication exhibited by these regular columnists. Several have completed their columns while at airports or flying across the globe.

I believe you will also enjoy our five full-length papers. Summaries of each are provided on our web page.

As we conclude another year of publication, I invite your comments that tell us what you think we are doing right and where you would like us to go (please be polite!). Our publication is only as good as the papers and columns that are submitted.

We look forward to another productive year at JOT in 2008.


Best regards,


Richard Wiener
