My dear readers,

This issue of IS marks the 9-th anniversary of IK- i.e. Info Kappa,
my newsletter- that started at July 9, 2002. I am not impressed more by numerology than by astrology – but numbers and symmetry have a peculiar beauty, especially if good memories
and hard work are associated with them.
468 weeks, 463 issues of what now is the INFORMAVORE’s SUNDAY but has the hidden ambition to be a publication for INFOGOURMETs.  Unfortunately, the word INFOCHEF was
not created by me.
It seems the Internet can not help much to increase the popularity
of my selection of links- but it is a pleasure and a challenge to
compose it, week by week, till…
Yours as ever,
