Dear Bill:

..
 
-
 
-
Which leads me to the topic of GO Corporation. We're preparing a
 
-
proof-of-concept demonstration for early June. We're at a point in our
 
-
planning and development where it's now clear to us that cooperation
 
-
with Microsoft is both appropriate and of potential mutual interest.
 
-
 
-
Jerry and I would appreciate the opportunity to share our product plans
 
-
and show you the demo in our labs on a confidential basis .. Both Jerry
 
-
and I are very interested in your thoughts and comments on GO's plans.
