Dear Elaine,
I'm not an expert on the subject, but from what I think and what I've
gathered in the business is that the explosion of the internet basically
eclipsed the market for CD-Roms. For example, the Microsoft Cinemamania
package -- as good as it was -- was a hard sell because of the IMDB. I think
there is a definite need for good, authoritive packages of information on
CD-Rom that can filter out all the junk on the internet (for every ten right
entries on the IMDB, there's probably a wrong one), but the marketplace
dictated otherwise.

On the other hand, I don't have a clue what is being produced and what is
being made available for CD-Roms, so there might be a need to have it.

<< Dennis:
You mention in your message to Rick that the CD-ROM market died about two
years ago. I was interested to hear that as the Health Faculty here are
trying to get me to purchase in that format. I have been resisting that. I
feel that the next format we are going to get into will be DVD and not
CD-ROM. Could you comment a little more about CD-ROM? Thanks.
