Clifford Stoll: Always Good For A Laugh

Newsweek, February 27, 1995: The Internet? Bah! Hype alert: Why cyberspace isn’t, and will never be, nirvana

How about electronic publishing? Try reading a book on disc. At best, it’s an unpleasant chore: the myopic glow of a clunky computer replaces the friendly pages of a book. And you can’t tote that laptop to the beach. Yet Nicholas Negroponte, director of the MIT Media Lab, predicts that we’ll soon buy books and newspapers straight over the Intenet. Uh, sure.

I guess there must be good money in being such an idiot.
