The Final Update To This Page Was Made on: 10 MAY 1999

Over the period from September 8, 1999 to May 10, 1999, a total of 274 items were placed on these pages (75 in Fall 1998 and 199 in Spring 1999). Of all the items below, Charlie's Favorites are:

"Time makes more converts than reason." Thomas Paine (1737-1809)
and / but
"Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils." Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)
(May 10, 1999 Posting.

"Technological change is neither additive nor subtractive. It is ecological. I mean 'ecological' in the same sense as the word used by environmental scientists. ... A new technology does not add or subtract something. It changes everything [stress added]." Neil Postman, 1992, Technopoly: The Surrender Of Culture To Technology (NY: Vintage), page 18. (March 29, 1999 Posting.)

A NEW LOW-TECH SOLUTION: This item describes the new Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge device, popularly known by its acronym BOOK. BOOK is a breakthrough in technology, requiring no wires, no electric switches, no batteries, nothing to be connected or switched on (although sufficient illumination is needed and strongly recommended). Compact and portable, BOOK can be used anywhere, yet it is powerful enough to hold as much information as a CD-ROM. BOOK, constructed of sequentially-numbered sheets of paper, is capable of holding thousands of bits of information. The sheets of a BOOK are held together with a device called a binding, keeping the sheets in correct order. Opaque Paper Technology allows manufacturers to use both sides of each sheet, doubling the information density! While using the BOOK, each sheet is optically scanned by the user, registering information directly into the brain. After scanning a single sheet, a simple flick of the finger brings up the next sheet of information. BOOK never crashes or needs rebooting (as with certain other information technologies) although it can be damaged should liquids be spilled on it (as with other technologies) and BOOK is not impervious to fire (although Fahrenheit 212 has been determined to be the point of combustion). The "browse" feature of BOOK allows the user to move virtually instantaneously to to any Bio-Optic-Sheet, forward or backward, and many BOOKs come with "index" or "topic" features, allowing the user, or any other user of BOOK, to pinpoint exact locations of an information item for instant retrieval. An optional "bookmark" accessory allows users to open BOOK to the last sheet used in previous sessions and bookmarks fit universal-design standards: amazingly, a single bookmark can be used with BOOKs produced by totally incompatible manufacturers. (Perhaps even more unique, multiple types of bookmarks may be used on a single BOOK, incorporating technologies from metal, paper, and string distributors.) Market analysts believe that BOOK has a bright future in an increasingly complex and technology-driven world. Incidentally, a recent BOOK publication has pointed out that one Johannes Gutenberg (1394-1468) should be credited with being the most important individual of the current millennium:

"If not for Gutenberg, Columbus...might never have set sail, Shakespeare's.... genius could have died with him, and Martin Luther's...Ninety-five Theses would have hung on that door unheeded. In fact, without mass quantities of books to burn, the Inquisition could have fallen flat on its face. The printing press, developed by Gutenberg in the 1430s, helped spread truth, beauty, and yes, heresy throughout the world. We know the Chinese had movable type for centuries before Gutenberg, but they used it for silk printing, not books. Gutenberg, however, always had publishing in mind. Copies of his first major project, the Bible, survive today. He worked for years to perfect his system of movable type and a press that could mass-produce books, leaflets, and propaganda. What little is known about Gutenberg comes from the many lawsuits filed against him for the rights to the invention. But no one successfully challenged Gutenberg's place as the Western inventor of movable type and the printing press. Because his press unharnessed the power of ideas on the world, we rank him ahead of the people whose ideas found an audience through printing [stress added]." Agnes Hooper Gottlieb, Henry Gottlieb, Barbara Bower, Brent Bowers, 1998, 1,000 Years, 1,000 People: Ranking the Men and Women Who Shaped the Millennium (NY: Kodansha International), page 2).

(The above is roughly based on an item which appeared in a companion item to BOOK, namely the NEWSLETTER [which I have interpreted as: Nascent Educational Words Shared Locally, Eventually Transforming Thinking, Enabling Refreshment ] entitled Chico Carrel, from The Chico Friends of The Library, March 1999, which, in turn, was based on a item from the Internet.)

Continuing on the FYI From Last Week} "Sex has always sold--in any medium and in every era. Yet the Internet has been the virtual Viagra for the adult industry, with 1998 online earnings topping $1 billion, according to Forrester Research, up about 30% from 1997. Lately, the only things selling better than sex on the Net are Net companies' initial ublic offerings. Entrepreneurs are seeking to combine the trend by taking their online porn companies public." (Karl Taro Greenfeld, Taking Stock In Smut. Time, April 19, 1999, page 43)

"When the commercial history of the Internet is written, whose names will appear among the chief catalysts? Beyond cybervisionaries such as America Online founder Steve Case, you could make a powerful argument for including Pamela Anderson Lee, chronic centerfold and star of what is now perhaps the world's best-known home movie. ... of all the famous names, none has been appropriated--or misappropriated--more than Ms. Lee's. This, by a Web culture that, beyond its sex-obsessed nature, often gleefully flouts copyright laws and annoints its stars based on a shifting index of raw public interest rather any particular talent." (Thomas E. Weber, Who Rules The Web? The Wall Street Journal, April 13, 1999, pages 1 and A8, page 1).

On April 12, 1999, the following 7 items were added to this page:

"Technology does not necessarily change simply because it would be good for the consumer." (Ben H. Bagdikian, 1971, The Information Machines: Their Impact On Men And The Media, page xix).

http://www.ita.doc.gov/industry/otea/utde/index.html [The Digital Economy]

Just an FYI} "In fact, it's not even clear that digital technology would be the social and economic phenomenon it is today if it weren't for the kinkier purposes that millions of people are putting it to. Cybersmut, digital porn, the final frontier of erotic entertainment--whatever you want to call it, the prurient use of the new media like computers, the Internet and DVD is among the most powerful forces driving these techniques into our lives. And with every new digital innovation, porn is being reshaped, transformed into something that may not seem as futuristic as a cybersex bodysuit but in many ways represents a far more significant break with the past. Not that there's anything novel about the cozy relationship between pornography and new communications technologies. ... Adult websites are a nearly $1 billion-a-year business. That's close to a tenth of the size of the sex industry as a whole, and with current annual growth rates of 20% to 30% showing no signs of abating, it will soon claim the lion's share." (Julian Dibbell, The Body Electric. Time Digital [http://www.timedigital.com], April 12, 1999, pages 24-27.

"What measures 1 cubic inch, runs Linux, and processes 500 percent faster than a PalmPilot (and contains four times more memory)? The world's smallest Web server. Created by Stanford computer science professor Vaughan Pratt, the matchbox-sized computer can theoretically crunch spreadsheets, manage databases, and serve Web sites, all from a road warrior's wrist. Pratt built the server as a demonstration of high processing power in a tiny form factor (his how-to info is at wearables.stanford.edu). As for the small server's big-time potential, he won't make any predictions. 'In this market, a product will succeed if, and only if, the gods smile on it,' Pratt says. 'But it's certainly worth thinking about [stress added].'" by David Pescovitz, Wired [7.05], May 1999, page 41.)

"Real Cheap PCs. It doesn't seem that long ago that a good deal on a computer meant a new PC that sold for under a grand. Now the cheapest PC practically pays for itself. The $299 Webzter Jr. desktop from Microworkz Computer Corp. packs a surprisingly powerful punch with its 300-MHz Cyrix processor, 32 megabytes of memory and a 3.2-gigabyte hard drive.

"Scientists have invented a device that shoots streams of atoms in any direction the same way a laser sends out beams of light. The breakthrough...could lead to a revolutionary new tool for making extremely small computer chips....A report on the work appears today in the journal Science."

"Project Oxygen May Blow Away Web Speeds. ... Crisscrossing the globe, the 37 year old telecommunications expert [Neil Tagare] is proposing what many consider unfathomable: A $10 billion, 100,000-mile worldwide network that he claims will be up to 5.5 million times faster than the World Wide Web. Project Oxygen...Launched in mid-1997...will undergo several phases before it is completed in early 2003. ... Oxygen will 'allow anyone-large corporation, cable provider-to participate in the world's fastest Internet service,' Tagare said. 'It is not an exclusive club for universities and selected companies.' The subtle dig is at Internet2 [please see March 8, 1999 in these pages] a coalition of universities and high-tech companies formed in late 1996. Last month it flipped the switch on a key segment of its private research network that connects 70 college campuses. The nonprofit organization includes Stanford University, the University of California at Berkeley and Harvard University, as well as major corporate sponsors Cisco Systems, IBM, Qwest Communications and Nortel. The 13,000-mile Internet2 network is 45,000 times faster than the commercial Web, but it is not available to the public. Only researchers and employees at the colleges and corporate sponsors can use it. Consumers eventually will be able to use cutting-edge applications created on Internet2 but only after they have been developed and sold by Internet2 members for commercial purposes [stress added]."

Re Y2K:
all direct quotations from Time, March 15, 1999, page 26.

"TELEPHONE: The millenium bug will not disrupt world phone services (International Telecommunications Union)

TELEPHONE: There's a 50% to 60% chance each major carrier will suffer at least one failure of a mission-critical system (Gartner Group, premier Y2K consultants)

FOOD: There's no need to go around stockpiling and buying large quantities of food (Senator Christopher Dodd on PBS's Newshour)

FOOD: Stockpiling extra food and water may be advisable (Y2K report co-authord by Dodd)

DURATION: 90% of Y2K problems will be solved within 72 hours (Gartner Group)

DURATION: Be prepared for three months of electrical outages, food shortages (programmer Scott Olmstead)

AIR TRAVEL: Thorough testing indicates there will be no impact on Jan. 1 (Federal Aviation Authority)

AIR TRAVEL: Flight rationing is 'highly possible' (Senate report)

OUTTA HERE? Only 1% of people concerned about Y2K will relocate from the cities; most would have done it already (Edward Yourdon, co-author of Timebomb 2000)

OUTTA HERE? Cities my be paralyzed by balky security systems, elevators, heaters, traffic lights and commuter trains. This could lead to a mass exodus to the countryside (Computerworld)

"Virtual University Receives Real Accreditation.

People didn't want to believe it when the figure came out, according to Gartner's Marilyn Truglio.

Did everyone catch the following on February 9, 1999: "Backers of Internet2 -- a faster, more powerful sequel to the Internet -- are launching the online system nationwide this month. A coalition of universities and high-tech companies yesterday announced that a key technological piece of the private research network -- dubbed the Abilene project -- will connect 70 college campuses, including Stanford University, the University of California at Berkeley and Harvard University, as well as major corporate sponsors Cisco Systems, Qwest Communications and Nortel. When operational on February 24, the 13,000-mile, 2.4 gigabits-per- second network will be 100 to 1,000 times faster than the commercial Web. But it will be available to far fewer people: Only researchers and employees at the colleges and corporate sponsors can use it and it will not be offered to consumers. Some 140 universities that have financially contributed to Internet2 should have access to the new network by 2000. Consumers will eventually be able to use cutting-edge applications developed on Internet2, but only after they have been developed and sold by Internet2 members for commercial purposes. ... Engineers in different states could design products together in 3-D environments. Hospitals would be able to collaborate on diagnosing diseases by using computer-generated images broadcast over the Net. And college professors and students could mine vast databases of information from 'digital libraries' at more than 100 universities nationwide. Internet2 and a similar project, the government-backed Next Generation Internet, are modeled after the original Internet -- except they'll use fiber-optic circuits instead of standard telephone lines and more sophisticated software. Both projects plan only limited links to the Internet [stress added]."

"Computers are spawning a genuine revolution in human culture. As with any revolution, the long-term cultural and ethical ramifications remain unclear. We have no definitive sense of where we are going; we know simply that we are going there quickly. The sheer pace of change often keeps us from digging below the surface and developing the resources we need to make sense of computers on any deep, personal level. The most common response to the rapid change and uncertainty that computation has engendered is to fall on one side of an extreme--either elevate computers to the role of saviors or become neo-Luddites and cite them as the main source of our contemporary woes. In light of the ways in which computers are saturating our reality, these views are naïve, maybe even dangerous." Jennifer Cobb, 1998, Cybergrace: The Search For God In The Digital World, page 19.

NOTE: "[Children] Born during a baby bulge that demographers locate between 1979 and 1994, they are as young as five and as old as 20, with the largest slice still a decade away from adolescence. And at 60 million strong, more than three times the size of Generation X, they're the biggest thing to hit the American scene since the 72 million baby boomers. Still too young to have forged a name for themselves, they go by a host of taglines: Generation Y, Echo Boomers, or Millennium Generation. ... Most important though, is the rise of the Internet, which has sped up the fashion life cycle by letting kids everywhere find out about even the most obscure trends as they emerge. It is the Gen Y medium of choice, just as network TV was for boomers. 'Television drives homogeneity,' says Mary Slayton, global director for consumer insights for Nike. 'The Interet drives diversity [stress added].'" Ellen Newborne et al., 1999, "Generation Y" in Business Week, February 15, 1999, pages 80-88, page 82-83.

"In a time of drastic change, the learners will inherit the future." Eric Hoffer (1902-1983) 

In case you missed them over the break, please consider the following:

"It's a puzzlement. U.S. companies announced a record 678,000 job cuts in 1998, but the unemployment rate dropped to 4.3% in December, a 28-year low. ...what keeps driving the U.S. economy? It's the new economy, plain and simple. ... For example, the information industries broadly defined, have for the first time become the biggest job creators in the economy. Over the past year, more than 37% of new jobs have come from information-related service industries, such as communications, education, software, consulting, and financial services.... [stress added]." (Michael J. Mandel, 1999, Cracking This Crazy Economy. Business Week, January 25, 1999, pp. 39-40, page 39)

"Information age isn't yet history. The Declaration if Independence, written two centuries ago, can be read by a child. The Dead Sea Scrolls are a bit tougher, but scholars can still decode words written on parchment two millenia ago. But if you were to dig up a computer disk formatted on a PC just two decades ago [1978!], you'd be hard-pressed to read it. Even if the magnetically coded information is undisturbed, the 5 1/4-inch floppy won't read it and any computer that could is probably in a museum. In an era when technological innovations are old by the time they make it to market, the world is faced with a paradox: We can create and distribute information faster and more easily than ever, but it has become harder to store and retrieve" [stress added]." Carlos Alcalá, Information age isn't yet history. The Sacramento Bee, December 26, 1998, pages 1 and page A21, Page 1.

"The future is already here. It's just not evenly distributed." (William Gibson; as cited in Jeffrey Papow, 1998, Enterprise.com: Market Leadership in the Information Age, page 123) [ps: Dr. Papow is President and CEO of Lotus Development Corporation, Cambridge, Massachusetts)

"The fact is, each time society made an abrupt leap to a new level of production, there were losers and winners. It may well be that the computer revolution will exacerbate the existing fault lines of society, creating new 'information ghettos.'"

"When this circuit learns your job, what are you going to do?" In Marshall McLuhan & Quentin Fiore (1967), The Medium Is The Massage (NY: Bantam), page 20. (November 30, 1998)

"Indeed, there are already shadows in the bright dawn of this new educational approach. Some professors are grousing that electronic courses consume a startling huge chunk of time in responding to students' e-mail queries--far more time, they suggest, than similar queries raised in a [traditional] classroom, where an answer to one student may satisfy several others as well. To some, such complaints are just one example of why the Internet won't displace brick-and-mortar universities [stress added]." (Robert Cwiklik, 1998, A Different Course.The Wall Street Journal, November 16, 1998, pages R31 and R34). (November 30, 1998)

On November 30, 1998, the following 13 items were added to this page:

"When this circuit learns your job, what are you going to do?" In Marshall McLuhan & Quentin Fiore (1967), The Medium Is The Massage (NY: Bantam), page 20.

"On-line college classes get high marks among students. Cyber courses handy but more work for teacher. Universities across the country are rushing to put their classes on line, but the trend won't lead to lower tuition costs any time soon, officials say. College classes offered on the Internet cost as much or more than traditional on-campus classes. That's because it's more labor intensive to teach an on-line class than it is a regular chalk-and-talk class, officials say. And students are willing to pay a premium for the convenience of learning on line] stress added]." Faith Bremmer, USAToday, November 16, 1998, page 16E)

"Indeed, there are already shadows in the bright dawn of this new educational approach. Some professors are grousing that electronic courses consume a startling huge chunk of time in responding to students' e-mail queries--far more time, they suggest, than similar queries raised in a [traditional] classroom, where an answer to one student may satisfy several others as well. To some, such complaints are just one example of why the Internet won't displace brick-and-mortar universities [stress added]." (Robert Cwiklik, 1998, A Different Course.The Wall Street Journal, November 16, 1998, pages R31 and R34).

"A decade from now, personal computers will cost less than $300 and will pack 64 times the muscle of today's models. Newspapers won't exist in their current form, and most books will be read from electronic, hand-held machines. Nearly everything will be hooked into the Internet, allowing light fixtures to report burned-out bulbs and voyagers to instantly check stock prices from remotest New Guinea on a pocket-size device. Maybe. These are just a few of the prognostications by prominent futurists, whose job it is to peer into our collective destiny to sdiscern where technology might be taking the human race. Will they all come true? Doubtful. Are they fun to imagine? Definitely [stress added]." (William M. Bulkeley, The Wall Street Journal, November 16, 1998, page R4)

NOTE: The International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) will be meeting in San Francsico, CA, Dec 6-9,1998. According to Business Week, November 30, 1998, they will have (at least) the following: "While most of the chipmaking methods to be discussed at the IEDM will focus on shrinking transistors to around the 0.1 micron widths needed after [the year] 2005, the researchers at Lucent Technologies Inc.'s Bell Laboratories will look at what it'll take to trim them to 0.01 micron. That's just 20 silicon atoms across. If 0.01 micron transistors become feasible--a feat that is not anticipated before [the year] 2025--then one memory chip will be able to store 25,000 sets of the Britannica." (Business Week, November 30, 1998, page 99)

NOTE: "By 2050, the United States population will grow to 394 million, some 50 percent more than at present [AND SEE http://www.census.gov/cgi-bin/popclock for the latest USA figures of ~271,000,000+], the Census Bureau projects in a new population profile. And this population will be older, on average, than now and will contain a larger share of minorities. ... California is expected to continue rapid growth, adding 17.7 million people between 1995 and 2025, the agency said. [INCIDENTALLY, California's estimated population in 1998 was ~32,000,000]."

"Are you [we] gathering the skills necessary to really be at home in your calling's next iteration of achievement? Education, however, defined, will be accessible anywhere and in ever more modular form. Electronic education in its present stage of development has two particularly promising applications: enhancing the transfer of specifics, highly organized presentations of maps, mathematical relationships, molecular structures, metabolic pathways, trade relationships, etc., and representing unfolding processes (for instance, illuminating how we think and imagine our way through problems). Schoolteachers dread the possibility that star educators will take over their pupils' attention via educational networks, software, CDs, and Internet group tutorials, leaving them to serve as mere classroom monitors and paperwork checkers. Density of experience is what counts, however, and on-screen excitement calls for comparable quality in flesh-and-blood teaching [stress added]. The more students see Virgil or selection theory, the more responsive interest they acquire. Most of us never knew how much we needed English teachers until we actually saw Anthony and Cleopatra and were left bursting with unanswered questions. The great electronic educators will almost certainly leave plenty of tantalizing questions open, knowing that a good argument after a lecture fixes ideas and stretches mental muscles more than the most rapt passive attention." Derek Leebaert, 1998, "Present At The Creation," pages 1-33, pages 23-24; in The Future of the Electronic Marketplace, edited by Derek Leebaert (MIT Press).

"You are only what you are when no one is looking." Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

"The Human Genome Project intends to catalog our entire genome by 2005. A newer, privately funded venture lend by former project director Craig Venter plans to complete the task in a mere three years. But Harvard cell biologist Daniel Branton and UC Santa Cruz biophysicist David Deamer are perfecting a technique that could do the job in a day."

"Machines On The March. As we automate our lives, swallowed in a bottomless maw of voice-mail, it's hard not to heed that little voice telling us to listen. ... As we give in to the encroachment of an ever more machine-dominated world, I have come to believe that we are slowly losing the fabric of human contact." Susan Sward, The Sunday San Francisco Chronicle & Examiner, October 18, 1998, page 8.

On October 12, 1998, the following 3 items were added to this page [and, please, is there a "trend" here?]:

"Readers the world over say high-tech designers better get customer-friendly fast. ... the computer industry has a lot of baffled, frustrated, and unhappy customers. That is a much graver threat to the long-term health of the high-tech sector than the Asian crisis, the Year 2000 bug, or just about anything else. ... There's one thing missing from this outpouring. I've heard from engineers, programmers, and usability gurus. But the product planners and marketeers who make the key hardware and software design decisions have been conspicuously silent. You folks have a lot of angry customers out there. How are you going to respond?" (Stephen H. Wildstrom, "They're Mad As Hell Out There." Business Week, October 19, 1998, page 32)

"It wasn't so long ago that people were actually afraid of computers, as if they would steal our souls while we sat in front of the monitor. Today we chuckle at such naive thinking. Computers are not evil--it is the people who make and sell them. As you have heard now is the time to buy a new computer. They are practically giving them away in boxes of cereal. The question is, do you need one? ... The answer is always the same--you need a new computer." (C.W. Nevius, "Gigabyte Sticker-Shock." The Sunday San Francisco Chronicle & Examiner, October 11, 1998, page 5)

"The personal computer remains the only common possession that makes smart people feel stupid and requires the constant ministrations of a priesthood of experts. Unless you own a really lousy car, it's likely that your PC is the least dependable device in your home or office. Unlike the telephone, television or fax machine, it requires constant 'upgrades' and behaves erratically, introducing a new hassle or two for ever one it supposedly eliminates." (Walter S. Mosberg, "Computing Got Easier Last Year, But It Still Has A Long Way To Go." The Wall Street Journal, Thursday October 8, 1998, page B1)

PLEASE NOTE: "Even today, as we hurtle toward what some sadists describe as an all-electronic future of CD-ROMs, interactive video, distance learning, and the Internet, the traditional format of printed words on paper bound between two covers somehow retains substantial power to attract, fascinate, and satisfy." J. Kevin Graffagnino, 1996, Only In Books: Writers, Readers, & Bibliophiles on Their Passion, page vii.
