To All New Readers of the Strategic News Service:

I would like to thank you for your interest in the Strategic News
Service(tm); if you are now on a trial subscription, you will receive four
free issues of SNS. Regardless of when you subscribe during the trial, you
will receive the same number of free issues. Subscription rates are listed
in each issue.

I hope that you will consider writing in on subjects which seem
appropriate. As you probably know, your co-subscribers include Bill Gates,
Michael Dell, Ann Winblad, Rick Sherlund, and many other industry leaders,
as well as employees throughout the ranks of companies such as Microsoft,
Intel, AT&T, and others. We probably share the belief that much of the
value of the newsletter comes from subscriber letters.

Many of the top analysts and investors at the leading investment banks and
venture funds also read SNS, including: Warburg Pincus Ventures, Venrock,
Hummer-Winblad, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank Morgan
Grenfell, CS First Boston, and others.

For more information about SNS, who reads it, and what they think --
together with past issues you can review -- please visit our web site at

Again, thanks for your interest, and I hope you enjoy SNS.
