    The following "view", recommending aggressive action against "technology
    virgins", will I suspect interest members of this group more for its
    rhetorical clothing than for the action it clothes -- or do I have the
    matter precisely reversed? In any case, were it not for the impossibility
    of a time-warp I might think that somehow this bit of e-mail had been
    written in the 1950s by someone imagining the technological future with
    uncanny accuracy but the social future rather less accurately.
