Editor's Note
I am very pleased to welcome several new authors to the journal, and I am especially happy that Jeremy Dickerson responded to my appeal to graduate students to submit articles for review. I also would like to thank Will Barratt for encouraging his graduate students to do some "investigative journalism" for their nice piece of work on the use of facebook. Now, the rest of you graduate students who read this journal should get to work and submit some articles.
