Volume 3 No.2, Spring 1999
Letters to the Editors
Jeff Beasley of New Mexico State University founded the Technology Interface in the Fall of 1996 and served as editor through the Winter of 1999. Jeff selected Wesley Baldwin and Alan Leduc of Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana to serve as editors beginning with the Spring 1999 issue.
Spring 1999 issue you say; this is July and July is hardly Spring. As might be expected with any change over, particular with a project that is pushing the edge of technology, Wes and Alan fumbled once or twice after taking the hand-off. However, we hope that you find the end result worthwhile.
The Technology Interface has a slightly new look. The Technology Interface website has been reworked into four sections:
The Home Page (http://web.bsu.edu/tti/index.html) - this page allows you to navigate to the remaining sections of the Technology Interface.
Technology Links - this section of the web site is outside of the official journal section of the web site and will allow links to be added and/or deleted as appropriate. It is hoped that you will submit your favorite links and that the Technology Interface will become a predominate resource for finding technology information online. The editors may reward deserving sites with the Technology Interface Web Site Award of Excellence .
The Archives - the Technology Interface is a refereed journal and therefore must be archived. Archives are accessed from the home page. An Archive Index has been developed that allows the user to search for previous articles by using the Index by Author or the Index by Topic. It is hoped that some time in the future, a search engine will be added that will allow users to search by keyword. Journals beginning with innagural Fall of 1996 through the Winter of 1999 are housed at New Mexico State University with a back-up maintained by Ball State University. Issues beginning Spring 1999 will be archived by Ball State University.
The Journal - the current issue of the Technology Interface is accessable from the home page. Upon release of a subsequent issue, "the current issue" will be moved to the archives.
The editors believe that this format allows the Technology Interface to serve as both a dynamic web site which can be updated immediately (technology links) and a formal journal.
We have worked out many bugs in preparing our first issue and are sure that we will experience more in future issues. We wish to thank Jeff Beasely, our authors, and all of you for your patience will we put this issue together.
Please send your comments to the editors. We look for to your applause and criticism.
