These were interesting announcements and appropriate to a www "talk"
stream. If there is to be a list restricted to software development
then perhaps it should have a name that reflects that.

I changed Roy's "software developers" to "development" because it seems
that is what he must have meant. The announcements WERE eminently relevant
to developers -- we all want to know what other developers are doing!
