We're starting off a new year of CIC operation with not one, but two new Mail Bags! The first is a standard look at the crazy and kooky email we get on a regular basis and our impressions on it. Clever people might have guessed the url while we were working on it. You can find the August 10, 2002 edition here. The second is much more mysterious. A long time ago we compiled a number of old emails from early on in the CIC's history and pre-history. And we've sat on these for a couple years until today. Now you can get a glimpse behind the scenes of the CIC's creation here. Bet nobody expected that one!
