Misc

We decided to read excerpts from Negroponte's "Being Digital". We will discuss this reading at a future meeting in addition to the New Yorker article entitled "Only Disconnect" by james Wolcott.

We also decided that photocopies should be made for everyone.

Remzi will choose some relevant readings from the snazzy looking "Resisting the Virtual Life".

We could not figure out a way to turn of netsape's so-called "cookie" mechanism and decided that Netscape's help system is, at best, weak.
