We'd like to congratulate John Norstad, author of Disinfectant and NewsWatcher among others, for his John J. Anderson Distinguished Achievement Award from MacUser. Check out pages 84 and 85 of the Mar-94 MacUser for the picture and blurb. We hope others will make equally high-quality software available to the Macintosh community. And of course, we're waiting with bated breath for the next version of NewsWatcher. Thanks, John! If you want to check out a nicely-formatted collection of John's software on the World-Wide Web via NCSA Mosaic, here's the URL.
