Every brokerage, Web site and investing neophyte seems to be weighing in these days with stock selections for the next a) year, b) decade, c) century or d) millennium.

For those seeking another indicator of which way the economy is going, look no further than the annual charity auction in San Francisco thrown by Red Herring magazine.

On the Cheney trail Friday with his friend of three decades, lanky former Sen. Alan K. Simpson (R-Wyo.) told of his efforts to clear up the discrepancy years back.

Why haven't technology and the issues of the "new economy" made more of an impact on this year's election campaigns? That's the question that Times columnist Ronald Brownstein asked last week, and others have wondered about it too. Many commentators have noted that Al Gore has long been known for his affinity with technology-related public policy; he essentially ran as a high-tech candidate in 1992 and 1996.

But these days people in the telecommunications field seem to wake up every day to face a new world. There are new regulations and legislation, court decisions that overturn legislation, big and small mergers and acquisitions, and, of course, new technologies that threaten to turn everything upside-down.

CNet Inc. is spending $100 million on an advertising campaign that tells America what it does--mainly run stories and reviews of technology products on its Web site. "Buying a computer?" blares one of its newspaper ads. "Maybe you should start at a place that doesn't sell any."
