Thanks for the update, Jay. If this guy doesn't have time to talk to you, he
just not want to do business with Enron too badly! I wouldn't waste a whole
lot of time on this. Happy Easter...SRS

I have been in contact with this guy. He didn't have time to speak on first
contact, so we set up a time to talk on Monday, and he did not call and was
unavailable when I rang him. Looking forward to his return call...

Jay, Jeff received a call yesterday from a 2nd year HBS student and
co-founder of a B2B commerce company - Franz Edward Alphonse - who wanted to
speak to Jeff (for the ever-popular "5 minutes") about his company. Jeff has
asked that you follow up with this gentleman. His phone number is

(Karen, I'm copying you in the event you have any information on Mr. Alphonse
- i.e., did he interview w/Enron and if so, how did he do).

Thanks, Jay. Please send Jeff a note with any update once you have spoken to


PS - I'm back from Italy and ready to have that drink whenever it works for
you and Greg. I understand he's out for a few weeks now while he moves his
family to Houston...
