As the securities and investments industry prepares for the implementation of possibly the most dramatic series of changes we will see in our lifetime -- namely Reg NMS and the NYSE's plan to implement a hybrid exchange model -- no number of editorials or articles seems to be able to do the topics justice. In the following pages, you will find a few more viewpoints and prognostications from five of your peers. However, with so many topics to cover -- including Reg NMS, security, algorithmic trading, the NYSE's hybrid model, industry consolidation, alternative investments, emerging technologies and business/IT strategy -- we knew we couldn't include all of the content in the print magazine. So, instead of limiting Wall Street & Technology's Visions 2006 industry outlook to the pages you are reading, we have expanded the coverage to include podcasts -- essentially, short digital audio (MP3) files. To hear all of the commentary, which includes exclusive content not found in the magazine, visit www.wallstreetandtech.com/podcast to listen to the audio podcasts. And throughout 2006 and beyond, WS&T's editors will continue to deliver exclusive news and thought-provoking commentary from industry leaders through podcasts on www.wallstreetandtech.com/podcast.
