When is a broker alliance not an alliance? When it's being cited as an example of a network of course. The CII's study book for the Advanced Diploma holds up broker alliance Unitas as an example of how a network operates. But it states that Unitas established the first network in 1997, something Backchat thinks The Broker Network might have an issue with, as it was incorporated in 1994.

CII operations director Claire Siegel promised that the error would be corrected in the next issue, and the example of networks would be widened to include other networks and alliances. Backchat hopes that this doesn't descend into a case of textbooks at dawn.
