Murder on the Internet express. A little sleuthing around the Web leads to Evidence: The True Witness (library.advanced.org/17049). Everything anyone ever wanted to know about forensics (without studying it in college) is there, from the use of hair and fibers to track down a perpetrator to a discussion of DNA and an extensive glossary.

Cleared for takeoff. Flying out of O’Hare or just a nut for the inner workings of the air-traffic control booth? Using RealAudio, listen to the CyberAir Airpark Chicago Approach (www.cyberair.com/audio/chiapp) as jumbo jets arrive and depart the Windy City.

They’re minding the kids. When parents bring their children along for conventions, KiddieCorp (www.kiddiecorp.com) is an organization planners can use to set up junior’s daytime agenda. The company’s Web site shows how offering on-site day care keeps attendees coming back, describes the types of programs it runs and includes testimonials from satisfied clients.
