Subject: Anecdotes Wanted

For a book to be published next spring by
Prentice Hall--an introduction to the
Internet for Humanists--I am seeking
anecdotes from individuals detailing the
ways that the Internet was a valuable
tool for your teaching, research, professional,
or personal activities.

--How did the Internet allow you to
accomplish a task in a way that was
faster or more effective than before?

--How did the Internet make something
possible that was not possible before?

--How has the Internet changed your life for
the better?

--What activity on the Internet do you now
consider an essential part of your life?

These stories might entail any aspect of
Internet usage: e-mail, ftp, gopher,
Archie, Veronica, Jughead, lists, www,
Usenet news, etc.

I am looking for both commonplace and
unusual stories from a broad range of
people from any area of the humanities.

Please send your responses to


Thank you.
