4.4 Does Conan know about this newsgroup? (alt.fan.conan-obrien)

conanshow@aol.com (now funnyontv@aol.com) takes mail from people for
Late Night. conanshow has posted a few times on a.f.c-ob, including once
when she said, "I'm not Conan, just his assistant. He knows about this
newsgroup and thanks you all for your support. I enjoy reading the
messages and will tell Conan about points I feel he should know about. He
doesn't have time to read this stuff himself."

Conan himself has written and said, "I don't read the Internet
computer network daily, but several of my staff members do and they give
me the gist of the comments."

However, according to at least one recent article, Conan has been
forcing himself to get more computer-friendly, and has been learning to
use the Internet. He has even taken a tour around the World Wide Web.
Whether this will lead to more Conan involvement on-line is uncertain, but
Conan does have a busy schedule (the show and all) that would preclude him
spending any outrageous amount of time online.

Elson Trinidad interviewed Conan, and says, "Of interest to you
people, I told him about THIS NEWSGROUP, and asked if he would make a
guest appearance on here, which he seemed very willing to do. He is
definitely aware of a.f.c-o, though he's never been on, due to his busy
schedule and that he admits to not being much of a computer person, but
he told me that his staff prints out postings to him and that he reads
them."

There are several staff members who read the group regularly, and
some contribute to the discussion from time to time. At the Conecon, it
was revealed that more members of the staff are planning to become active
on the internet, reading and possibly contributing to the newsgroup.

"I'm a technological kinda guy."
