After the recent plunge on the stock market for .com's, mathNEWS has decided it would be in the best interest of its stock owners, not to rebrand the existing bastion of erudite thought as mathNEWS.com.
Instead, mathNEWS will remain mathNEWS, and still be affiliated (loosely) with the university by its domain address, www.mathnews.uwaterloo.ca.
The repercussions of this conservative decision mean that mathNEWS will not be releasing its IPO within the 2001 year. Instead, the publication will raise funds by hosting events such as 'BakeFest' and the BYOA (Bring Your Own Article) Party.
Bradley T Smith, the current Editor-in-Chief had this to say on the turn of events, "I licked a dog's tongue on Friday. See, things can get worse." So true, you could be Ranil.
