STRINGER CONNECTIONS: In a blue-moon meeting of power people, these three men -- the people primarily responsible for the happening of the SilverStringers and the Melrose Mirror five years ago -- were part of the semi annual meeting of the corporate sponsors of MIT's Media Lab in late May. From the left are Stringer Advisor Jack Driscoll (former Boston Globe editor and now editor in residence at the Media Lab); Dr. Marko Turpeinen of Helsinki, designer of the original Stringer software and now vice president of the Alma communications conglomerate; and Walter Bender, now head of the Media Lab. The photo was snapped just as Walter opened his special award as "Stringer of the Year" -- for which he received the coveted "Melrose Mirror".
