Dana Frisch has enjoyed the sights of New York since moving here last summer from Toronto, but is puzzled about why all maps of North America appear to end at the US/Canada border.

Since joining the company in October 2000, Marian Moser Jones (“At Lynx, Out with Russell, In with Corcoran,” p. 20) has climbed four rungs on the GenomeWeb (step)ladder. Marian, who started out as a daily news reporter for GenomeWeb.com, became the founding managing editor and then chief editor of GT’s sister publication BioArray News. After a year establishing BioArray as the leading source of news about all things DNA-microarray, Marian is moving on to create another new job for herself: in July she became Editorial Director of Newsletters at GenomeWeb, where she will oversee direction of GenomeWeb’s existing newsletters, BioArray, BioInform, and ProteoMonitor, as well as any other newsletters that she decides to launch. Marian studied art theory at Harvard as an undergraduate, and is now pursuing a master’s degree in public health at Columbia University.
