Subject: two from the Atlantic Monthly

Two items, new to me, from the online Atlantic Monthly, will interest some
or many Humanists:

(1) James Fallows, "The Java Theory: The Internet might someday replace the
personal computer--but for now only conventional software can get you where
you need to go", at the URL


(2) Wen Stephenson, "The Message Is the Medium: A Reply to Sven Birkerts
and <cite>The Gutenberg Elegies</cite>", at the URL


Stephenson is an editor at the Atlantic Monthly. The work to which his title
refers is Sven Birkerts, <cite>The Gutenberg Elegies: The Fate of Reading in
an Electronic Age (Boston: Faber and Faber, 1994).

The online AM, known as Atlantic Unbound, looks quite good. The homepage is
at the URL http://www.agtnet.com/Atlantic/atlweb/ootoc.htm.
