    Settled and safe now in our broadband grip on information....

    What is the next cliff to slip over? Viruses are the obvious conclusion with such a massive access. Guess we'll find out and see who answers this question.

    Damn, thought it would say a bit more, really. Liking the history and all, but since the documetary has got some years on its back, it didn't really end in the big "and here he is today!"-ending I was looking for...

    "Why not a internet bank?", said some dude.
    "Ay", said I.
