Welcome to BarbedWire – but watch your fingers: they may get cut on the razors! What’s the difference between ‘analyzing’ the News, as we used to in this section of ComputerWire, and sticking it on the fork? The short answer is that this is the place in our electronic publication we want you to click to when you want to get the wider, wryer view on the day’s events. The rest of ComputerWire will tell you what you need to know. This section will help you work out what you need to think about it. What’s just noise, and what’s real? What’s the whisper on Wall St or the buzz in the Valley today that you need to get current on? The answer’s here, we think – BarbedWire: computer journalism for grown-ups.
