             Subject: special issue on Borgmann online

    Dear Humanists:

    Those of you interested in philosophy of technology as a framework for
    thinking about humanities computing may find the recent special issue of
    _Techne: Journal of the Society for Philosophy and Technology_
    of value:

    The special issue is devoted to Albert Borgmann's 1999 _Holding on to
    Reality: : The Nature of Information at the Turn of the Millennium_, which I
    think of a one of the two or three most important books around on IT from a
    philosophy of technology perspective.

    Borgmann replies to the essays, which makes for a very interesting read
