Internet ...

Here's a lovely piece written by Clifford Stoll about the internet in 1985 (via Roslyn). Maybe he's wrong on a few minor points, (online sales for one example). But some of the issues he raises, are still issues. I'm gradually warming to buying my music online, but not so keen on reading on a kindle. It is also true to the internet has added and subtract from our social communications.Like everything, there's enoromous positive and negative potential in technology. Anyway,, have a read of the artilcle here (and a reaction to the article here).
