NETPROFESSIONAL MAGAZINE SELECTS EDITORIAL ADVISORY BOARD

draws from ranks of Mac Internet tools developers, net administrators

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., April 21, 1998 -- Xplain Corporation, publisher
of NetProfessional magazine, today unveiled the editorial team creating the

eager to share their knowledge with readers.

Leading the team is Editor Raines Cohen, Founding Editor of NetProfessional
under the previous publisher for the magazine's first year of publication.

Group (BMUG) in 1984, and edited and wrote for MacWEEK for nearly five
years, covering technical topics.

"It's great to be working with Xplain on the new NetProfessional," Cohen
said. "The company has been uncompromising on maintaining editorial
independence while providing the resources and support to ensure that the
content will be technically rich and deep, with substantive coverage of
real-world solutions, providing answers for Mac Webmasters, internet
publishers, and net admins."

In addition to Cohen, Xplain has named Jessica Courtney as Managing Editor,
and Neil Ticktin as Publisher. This brings the long-standing experience of
MacTech Magazine, NetProfessional's sister publication, to the new
