About HEATSTOCK '99

On June 7, 1999, a crew of HEAT.NET personalities, including Ember, Cyberscribe, WildRoma and Hippie Chick, among others, began their virtual journey in Portland, Maine. As they crisscrossed the continent, the HEATSTOCK '99 argonauts filed daily stories and photos about the events witnessed along the virtual highways and byways of the United States and Canada. In addition to experiencing vicariously the daily thrills and adventures of life on the Road to HEATSTOCK '99 via www.heatstock.net, virtual tourists were able to send free electronic postcards from the tour bus and participate in prize events. Prizes include Sega Dreamcast gaming consoles and a year of cable modem service provided by Road Runner, the high-speed online service. Sixty days (and cities) later, they'll step off the virtual tour bus at HEAT.NET world headquarters in San Francisco, where they will attend the HEATSTOCK '99 LAN Party.
