Reading these pages reminds one of how depressing the machinations of the "real world" can be. It reminds me of why I often seriously step aside from this electronic world too and want to give it all up. Then I remember how useful and alive it can be. I suspect my reaction is more also against technology and computers themselves. If only there were more books telling it straight, then more people might read them, then more people would see things as they are, then things might even improve! Well, I'll still keep hoping no matter how vain those hopes. Consider this, this type of stand you are taking is more than just about books/publishing/etc it is about the very foundation of society itself (which changes a lot more and more quickly than we like to allow ourselves to think). Now that you've placed yourself in a unique position to make a difference, please don't give up the fight!
