Be a CONTROL Insider!
Every year we invite our readers to send us stories, suggestions, Tales from the Front submissions, or just talk back to us. This year, we want you to join a select group of people willing to be asked questions about issues in the process automation arena. You won't be quoted unless we ask you specifically. People chosen will become an official CONTROL Insider and will receive special notice of events and even some free stuff from time to time. If you want to be a CONTROL Insider let me know at wboyes@putman.net.
