What is there to say?

Not enough, unfortunately.  Escom has appointed a head of engineering for
"Amiga Computer" (the current working name for the new Escom company that
will handle the Commodore assets) in Dr. Peter Kittel, a veteran of
Commodore Germany.

As of now, though, the company has no chief executive, hasn't moved into a
building yet, hasn't announced distribution plans for North America, South
America, or Australia, and hasn't announced concrete plans for future Amiga
technology.

As such, there's still no "good place" to contact Escom and be heard on the
Amiga issue.

I do give them full credit-things have got to be hectic right now.  But it
is very hard on those who must sit and wait.

There is something good-Dr. Kittel has agreed to do an Amiga Report IRC
conference, and has offered to do a regular "questions and answers" column
for us.

As things are now, things certainly aren't at a standstill.  I'm playing
phone tag with the CEO of Viscorp, a company that just licensed the Amiga
technology from Escom.  Three major shows are planned for North America
this year-independently organized, but you can't have everything.

And we got our own listserv again.  What could be better?

In other news, the first issue of the Amiga Report Tech Journal is out, and
was received quite well.  Submissions are welcome-and encouraged.  Contact
Gregory Block, the editor, as editor@oubliette.com.

Keep paying attention, it's bound to get more hectic before it calms
down...
