WASHINGTON (AP) - Microsoft Corp., criticized for misjudging the
importance of the Internet in its earliest days, is joining a
research effort to build the formative stages of the next generation
of the worldwide computer network. Microsoft becomes the latest
corporate partner of the Washington-based University Corporation for
Advanced Internet Development, which is coordinating the research
among more than 150 universities nationwide. Microsoft's involvement,
along with a minimum pledge of $1 million, was expected to be
announced Wednesday. Other partners already include IBM Corp., Cisco
Systems Inc. and 3Com Corp. See
