Dear Mr. Blumberg,

On behalf of Jeff Skilling, I'm writing to let you know that he will be
traveling on Thursday, December 14, and will be unable to take your call as
mentioned below.

Further, Mr. Philippe Bibi, Enron Chief Technology Officer, is the
appropriate person to contact within Enron regarding your products. I have
forwarded this information to Mr. Bibi, and you may contact him directly.
His e-mail address is philippe.a.bibi@enron.com.

"Ajunto is the Enron of IT Sourcing..." --- Mike Carter, CEO & Founder,
Ajunto, December 12, 2000

"Skilling notes that skeptics thought Enron was crazy when it dared to
make electronic
?markets in energy. His confidence comes down to his belief in Enron's
market-making model.
?"We have a better business model. It's a fundamentally better business
model," he repeats.
?Some $200 billion in trading activity on an E-commerce site that's less
than a year old speaks
?volumes about Enron's ability to mobilize and execute on whatever it puts
its mind to-however
?the company decides to describe itself."
InformationWeek, 11/6/00

"As head of two Enron pipeline subsidiaries, Mike McConnell knew a lot
more about gas flows
?than he did about data flows last year when he got a surprise call from
Enron President and
?Chief Operating Officer Jeff Skilling. Recalls McConnell, "Jeff went into
this whole thought
?process about how the Internet is changing everything. He said, 'We need
to make Enron
?an e-business, and I need a guy that can run this as a business. We need
to change the way
?we view technology.'?? "I thought he was a little crazy and I said,
'Jeff, I'm not a technology person
?at all,? ?'He said, 'No, seriously -- this is going to be big.' So I took
over as CEO of Enron Global
?Technology," and thus became the company's de facto CIO, McConnell
explains.
