Moves behind the moves:

  • WebTrends Enterprise Suite is named as nominee for awards from
    Network Computing magazine.

  • Prodigy (NASDAQ:PRGYnews) announces a new service for Spanish-speaking
    Net users. Says that Spanish speakers buy computers at twice the rate of
    English speakers. I believe this market may be getting ripe for such a
    service and applaud Prodigy’s efforts. No surprise though given its Mexican
    majority ownership.

  • Healtheon (NASDAQ:HLTHnews) signs Tektronix (NYSE:TEKnews) , a healthcare
    provider with 8,000 employees in the U.S. and in 26 countries, to use
    Healtheon’s Web-based benefits management service.
