THE WORLD IS WATCHING: The small New England City of Melrose continues to gain world-wide recognition as the joint MIT-SilverStringers website production of the "Melrose Mirror" draws attention. In this case, it is the SamSung corporation in Seoul, Korea, that finds merit in the work of the local seniors -- enough so that, in order to stimulate seniors' use of computers in their country -- they sent Project Director Yeo Jin Lee for an up-close view of the works at the Milano Center. From the left are Stringers Marie Moreland, Don Norris (foreground) and Jim Driscoll, with Yeo Jin. Over 25 seniors take part in the monthly publication of the local electronic newspaper.
