@Work
2009.08.03(Review of 2005.10.17 edition)

Welcome! This week we look back at a set of editions first introduced to our readers four years ago (had you discovered @Work by then?), in which we celebrate the worker - the men and women in suits and coveralls, inside high-rise office buildings and factories, or outside at construction sites and in the fields ... or bent over their PC, carefully crafting the next edition of WordMaster@Work!

This week is for ALL of us!
