          Reference is made to:

          (A) The Stock Purchase Agreement dated February 18, 2000 between

20% of the capital stock of Individual is no longer necessary for NewsEdge to be
able to grant the rights under the Third-Party Content Agreements (as defined in

shall be paid by wire transfer to NewsEdge=s account on December 26, 2000,
without interest, and the remaining $1,000,000 of the Final Payment shall be
paid by wire transfer to NewsEdge's account on February 28, 2001, without
interest; and (d) Section 1.02(b) of the Stock Purchase Agreement is hereby
deleted.

 
          2.  The License Agreement is hereby amended to provide that the
NewsEdge review topics to be delivered to Individual pursuant to Section 2 of
the License Agreement are also to be delivered to Office and that the licenses
granted to Individual by NewsEdge pursuant to Section 3.1 thereof are also to be
granted to Office and that the responsibilities specified in Section 2.2 thereof
and the limitations specified in Section 3.2 thereof shall apply to Office as
well as to Individual.

          3.  Section B.2 of Exhibit B to the License Agreement is hereby
          amended to read as follows:

          shall pay NewsEdge a fee of Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000.00) for
          use of the NERTs, payable in four (4) equal quarterly installments of
