    [Apologies for the delay in publishing this, which got lost in the incoming
    flood; meanwhile Epstein's article has moved into the Archives and is to be
    found at <http://www.nybooks.com/nyrev/WWWarchdisplay.cgi?20001102004F>.
    Comments on the article most welcome. Allow me to register an objection to
    the technologically deterministic view of history offered in it, however --
    and to ask, why do we need to construct the world in such a simplistic way?
    Multiple, mysteriously interrelated phenomena make for a much more
    interesting view of things. --WM]

    Readers may be interested in sitting in the drivers seat for a while to
    experience a trial run of this commercial online service aimed at
    undergraduates. The implications of this service could be considerable.
