Well ... it *was* at one time -- a university library made up of 
electrons. But in my mind, that was long ago in a galaxy far away. Oh, 
sure, you can still spend time on the web in the university library. But 
now there's a red light district, shopping malls, gambling casinos, 
stalkers, bullying, con games, electronic gangs and thugs.

I've got my two G1G1 units and there are presumably two children 
somewhere who have the two Give One units. Don't get me wrong -- I think 
the *XO* is a positive force in the world. And I think it's *more* 
positive than what the WWW has become.
