The newsletter included various regular features such as the Jargon Scout, edited by Dawson, which attempted to spot and catalog technology-related neologisms and, to some extent, invent them. Another popular feature was Siliconia, an early attempt (begun in 1995) to document the geographic locations that were attempting to brand themselves "Silicon <Something>" in order to ride the coattails of Silicon Valley. Dawson was interviewed about the Siliconia trend for stories in Wired magazine, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and many other outlets.
The Roving Reporter, aka Ted Byfield, covered the development of ICANN during its early days.
Keith Dawson was a guest speaker at the First (and only) Annual Geek Pride Festival in Boston.
