Quote for the week: 
      Physical separateness can never be overcome by electronics, 
      but only by "conviviality", by "living together" in the most 
      literal physical sense. The physically divided are also the  
      conquered and the Controlled. "True desires" - erotic,  
      gustatory, olfactory, musical, aesthetic, psychic, & spiritual 
      - are best attained in a context of freedom of self and other 
      in physical proximity & mutual aid. Everything else is at best 
      a sort of representation.

2. Keeping Current with the Internet    
          This very selective webliography was designed for 
          librarians to help them keep up with the many useful 
          resources regularly added to the Web. Several of them are 
          also available via e-mail subscriptions if you can't 
         remember to check them on the Web regularly. - cl

3. California Digital Library 
On January 20th, the California Digital Library (CDL) opened its "digital 
doors" through which users can access the online library catalogs of the 
University of California system, as well as an array of digital resources 
such as indexes and databases, electronic journals and texts, archival 
finding aids, and digitized photographs and images. The CDL is intended 
primarily for University of California users, but many resources are freely 
available to any who enter. Users who access the site from another large 
university may have an easier time, since their campus might also be a 
participant in various electronic journal licensing agreements, such as 
MUSE and JSTOR. For example, browsing by arts & humanities as subject and 
electronic journals as format retrieved a list of 35 journals, many 
available in full-text, with a warning that if a user cannot access the 
text, his or her campus may not subscribe to the journal. CDL also provides 
access to the Online Archive of California, a searchable online union 
database of finding aids for archival collections from archives and special 
collections departments in over two dozen California institutions such as 
Stanford, the California Historical Society, and the California State 
library. Many of the finding aids in the Online Archive of California link 
to images and texts. [DS]

4. We Shall Overcome: Historic Places of the Civil Rights Movement 
National Register Travel Itinerary 
Historic properties related to the modern civil rights movement make up 
this new National Register Travel Itinerary (reviewed in the May 1, 1998 
Scout Report), provided by the National Park Service. Visitors can use the 
site to take a virtual or physical tour of the churches, schools, houses, 
and buildings where civil rights activists made their stand, protested, 
dreamt, and sometimes fought and died. Forty-one properties are listed in 
the itinerary, including pictures, addresses, and background information 
about the role each property played historically. Users can review the 
itinerary by property, state, or a clickable US map. Five text and 
pictorial pieces provide supplemental information about the civil rights 
movement: The Need for Change, The Players, The Strategy, The Cost, and The 
Prize include valuable references and links to information about key events 
and figures. Of added benefit is the extensive text and Web bibliography 
offered in the Learn More section. As a physical or a virtual destination, 
this travel itinerary is definitely worth the trip. [REB]

5. UN Wire - daily news summary 
Provided by the UN Foundation, UN Wire is a new "daily news summary 
covering the United Nations, global affairs and key international issues." 
Users interested in the UN or global affairs will find UN Wire an excellent 
resource for quick, concise accounts of the day's major stories. Each day, 
UN Wire covers issues such as UN Affairs; Health; Women, Children, and 
Population; Environment; Trade; Humanitarian Aid; Human Rights; and 
Peacekeeping. Typical entries include a few short paragraphs and direct 
links to the original news source and/or related resources. Free 
registration is required and users can subscribe for free daily email 
summaries of the headlines. UN Wire should be available for email delivery 
in complete form in the next few months. [MD]

8. "Free as Air, Free As Water, Free As Knowledge" (Speech) 
Bruce Sterling 
Speech to the Library Information Technology Association 
June 1992, San Francisco CA 
Hi everybody. Well, this is the Library Information Technology 
Association, so I guess I ought to be talking about libraries, or 
information, or technology, or at least association. I'm gonna give 
it a shot, but I want to try this from an unusual perspective. I 
want to start by talking about money. 
You wouldn't guess it sometimes to hear some people talk, but we 
don't live in a technocratic information society. We live in a 
highly advanced capitalist society. People talk a lot about the 
power and glory of specialized knowledge and technical expertise. 
Knowledge is power -- but if so, why aren't knowledgeable people 
*in* power? And it's true there's a Library *of* Congress. But how 
many librarians are there *in* Congress? 
The nature of our society strongly affects the nature of our 
It doesn't absolutely *determine* it; a lot of our technology is 
sheer accident , serendipity, the way the cards happened to fall, 
who got the lucky breaks, and, of course, the occasional eruption 
of *genius,* which tends to be positively unpredictable by its 
nature. But as a society we don't develop technologies to their 
ultimate ends. Only engineers are interested in that kind of 
technical sweetness, and engineers generally have their paychecks 
signed by CEOs and stockholders.  We don't pursue ultimate 
technologies. Our technologies are actually produced to optimize 
financial return on investment.  There's a big difference. 
Of course there are many elements of our lives that exist outside 
the money economy.  There's a lot going on in our lives that's 
not-for-profit and that can't be denominated in dollars. "The best 
things in life are free," the old saying goes.  Nice old saying. 
Gets a little older-sounding every day. Sounds about as old and 
mossy as the wedding vow "for richer for poorer," which in a modern 
environment is pretty likely to be for-richer-or poorer modulo our 
prenuptial agreement.  Commercialization. Commodification, a 
favorite buzzword of mine. It's a very powerful phenomenon. It's 
getting more powerful year by year. 
Academia, libraries, cultural institutions are already under 
protracted commercial siege.  This is the MacNeill Lehrer News 
Hour, brought to you by publicly supported television and, 
incidentally, AT&T. Welcome students to Large Northeastern 
University, brought to you by Pepsi-Cola, official drink of Large 
Northeastern. Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make ye 
employable.  Hi, I'm the head of the microbiology department here 
at Large Northeastern.  I'm also on the board of directors of 
TransGenic Corporation. The Chancellor says it's okay because a cut 
of the patent money goes to Large Northeastern. 
Welcome to the Library of Congress. Jolt Cola is the official drink 
of the Library of Congress. This is our distributed electronic data 
network, brought to you by Prodigy Services, a joint venture of IBM 
and Sears. You'll notice the banner of bright-red ads that runs by 
your eyeballs while you're trying to access the electronic 
full-text of William Wordsworth. Try to pay no attention to that. 
Incidentally there's a Hypertext link here where you can order our 
Wordsworth T-shirt and have it billed to your credit card. Did I 
mention that the Library of Congress is now also a bank? Hey, data 
is data! Digits are digits!  Every pixel in cyberspace is a 
potential sales opportunity. 
Be sure to visit our library coffee-bar, too. You can rent videos 
here if you want. We do souvenir umbrellas, ashtrays, earrings, the 
works.  We librarians are doing what we can to survive this 
economically difficult period.  After all, the library is a 
regrettably old-fashioned institution which has not been honed into 
fighting trim by exposure to healthy market competition.  Until 
now, that is! 
The American library system was invented in a different cultural 
climate. This is how it happened. You're Benjamin Franklin, a 
printer and your average universal genius, and it's the Year of Our 
Lord 1731.  You have this freewheeling debating club called the 
Junto, and you decide you're going to pool your books and charge 
everybody a very small fee to join in and read them. There's about 
fifty of you. You're not big people, in the Junto. You're 
not aristocrats or well-born people or even philanthropists. You're 
mostly apprentices and young people who work with their hands.  If 
you were rich, you wouldn't be so anxious to pool your information 
in the first place.  So you put all your leatherbound books into 
the old Philadelphia clubhouse, and you charge people forty 
shillings to join and ten shillings dues per annum.... 
Now forget 1731. It's 1991. Forget the leatherbound books.  You 
start swopping floppy disks and using a bulletin board system.  
Public spirited? A benefit to society? Democratic institution, 
knowledge is power, power to the people? Maybe... or maybe you're 
an idealistic nut, Mr. Franklin.  Not only that, but you're 
menacing our commercial interests. What about our trade secrets, Mr 
Franklin?  Our trademarks, copyrights, and patents. Our 
intellectual property rights. Our look-and-feel. Our patented 
algorithms. Our national security clearances. Our export licenses. 
Our FBI surveillance policy. Don't copy that floppy, Mr. Franklin! 
And you're telling me you want us to pay *taxes* to support your 
suspicious activities? Hey, if there's a real need here, the market 
will meet it, Mr Franklin. I really think this "library" idea of 
yours is something better left to the private sector, Mr Franklin.  
No author could possibly want his books read for free, sir.  Are 
you trying to starve the creative artist? 
Let's get real, Mr Franklin. You know what's real, Mr Franklin? 
*Money* is real. You seem to be under the misapprehension that 
information wants to be free and that enabling people to learn and 
follow their own interests will benefit society as a whole.  Well, 
we no longer believe in society as a whole. We believe in the 
*economy* as a whole -- a black hole! Why should you be able to 
think things, and even learn things, without paying somebody for 
that privilege?  Let's get to brass tacks, the bottom line. Money. 
Money is reality. You see this printed dollar bill?  It' s far more 
real than topsoil or oxygen or the ozone layer or sunlight.  You 
may say that this is just a piece of paper with some symbols on it, 
but that's sacrilege! This is the Almighty Dollar.  Most of the 
dollars we worship are actually stored in cyberspace.  Dollars are 
just digital ones and zeros in a network of computers, but that 
doesn't mean they're only virtual reality, and basically one big 
fantasy.  No, dollars are utterly and entirely real, far more 
real than anything as vague as the public interest. If you're not 
a commodity, you don't exist! 
Can you believe that Melville Dewey once said, "free as air, free 
as water, free as knowledge?"  Free as knowledge? Let's get real, 
this is the modern world -- air and water no longer come cheap!  
Hey, you want breathable air, you better pay your air conditioner's 
power-bill, pal. Free as water? Man, if you've got sense you buy 
the bottled variety or pay for an ionic filter on your tap. And 
free as knowledge? Well, we don't know what "knowledge" is, but we 
can get you plenty of *data,* and as soon as we figure out how to 
download it straight into student skulls we can put all the 
teachers into the breadline and the librarians as well. 
Ladies and gentlemen, there's a problem with showing Mr Franklin the door. 
The problem is that Mr Franklin was *right* in 1731 and Mr Franklin is 
*still right!*.  Information is not something you can successfully peddle 
like Coca-Cola.  If it were a genuine commodity, then information would 
cost nothing when you had a glut of it. God knows we've got enough data! 
We're drowning in data. Nevertheless we're only gonna make more. Money 
just does not map the world of information at all well.  How much is the 
Bible worth? You can get a Bible in any hotel room. They're worthless as 
commodities, but not valueless to humankind. Money and value are not 
What's information *really* about? It seems to me there's something 
direly wrong with the "Information Economy." It's not about data, 
it's about attention. In a few years you may be able to carry the 
Library of Congress around in your hip pocket. So? You're never 
gonna read the Library of Congress. You'll die long before you 
access one tenth of one percent of it.  What's important -- 
*increasingly important* -- is the process by which you figure out 
what to look at.  This is the beginning of the real and true 
economics of information.  *Not* who owns the books, who prints the 
books, who has the holdings. The crux here is *access,* not 
holdings. And not even *access* itself, but the signposts that tell 
you *what* to access -- what to pay attention to. In the 
Information Economy *everything* is plentiful -- except attention. 
That's why the spin-doctor is the creature who increasingly rules 
the information universe.  Spin doctors rule our attention. Never 
mind that man behind the curtain. No, no!  Look at my hand! I can 
make a candidate disappear. Watch me pull a President out of a hat. 
Look! I can make these starving people disappear in a haze of media 
noise. Nothing up my sleeve. Presto!  The facts don't matter if he 
can successfully direct our *attention.* 
Spin-doctors are like evil anti-librarians; they're the Dark Side 
of the Force. 
Librarians used to be book-pullers. Book-pullers. I kind of like 
the humble, workaday sound of that.  I like it kind of better than 
I like the sound of "information retrieval expert," though that's 
clearly where librarians are headed. Might be the right way to 
head.  That's where the power seems to be.  Though I wonder exactly 
what will be retrieved, and what will be allowed to quietly mummify 
in the deepest darkest deserts of the dustiest hard-disks. 
I like libraries and librarians, I owe my career to libraries and 
librarians. I respect Mr. Franklin. I hate seeing books turned into 
a commodity and seeing access to books turned into a commodity.  I 
do like bookstores too, and of course I earn my living by them, but 
I worry about them more and more. I don't like chainstores and I 
don't like chain distributors. We already have twelve human beings 
in the US who buy all the science fiction books for the twelve 
major American distributors. They're the information filters and 
the attention filters, and their criterion i s the bottom line, and 
the bottom line is bogus and a fraud.  I don't like megapublishers 
either. Modern publishing is owned by far too few people. They're 
the people who own the means of production, and worse yet, they own 
far too much of the means of attention.  They determine what we get 
to pay attention to. 
Of course, there are other ways, other methods, of delimiting 
people's attention besides merely commercial ones. Like aesthetic 
and cultural means of limiting attention. Librarians used to be 
very big on this kind of public-spirited filtering.  Conceivably, 
librarians could get this way again with another turn of the 
cultural wheel. Librarians could become very correct. Holdings must 
be thinned, and even in electronic media the good old *delete* key 
is never far from hand. 
Try reading what librarians used to say a hundred years ago Your 
ancestral librarians were really upset about popular novels.  They 
carried on about novels in a way which would sound very familiar to 
Dan Quayle. Here's a gentleman named Dr. Isaac Ray in the 1870s. I 
quote him: "The specific doctrine I would inculcate is, that the 
excessive indulgence in novel- reading, which is a characteristic 
of our times, is chargeable with many of the mental irregularities 
that prevail upon us to a degree unknown at any former period." 
Here's the superintendent of the State of Michigan in 1869. "The 
state swarms with peddlers of the sensational novels of all ages, 
tales of piracy, murders, and love intrigues -- the yellow-covered 
literature of the world." Librarian James Angell in 1904: "I think 
it must be confessed that a great deal of the fiction which is 
deluging the market is the veriest trash, or worse than trash. Much 
of it is positively bad in its influence. It awakens morbid 
passions. It deals in the most exaggerated representations of life. 
It is vicious in style." 
These worthies are talking about authors who corrupt the values of 
youth, authors who write about crime and lowlife, authors who drive 
people nuts, authors who themselves are degraded and untrustworthy 
and quite possibly insane. I think I know who they're talking 
about. Basically they're talking about *me.* 
Here's the President of the United States speaking at a library in 
"The boy who greedily devours the vicious tales of imaginary daring 
and blood-curdling adventure which in these days are far too 
accessible will have his brain filled with notions of life and 
standards of manliness which, if they do not make him a menace to 
peace and good order, will certainly not make him a useful member 
of society." Grover Cleveland hit the nail on the head. I feel very 
strongly, I feel instinctively, I feel passionately that *I* am one 
of those nails. Not only did I start out in libraries as that 
greedy devouring boy, but thanks to mindwarping science fictional 
yellow-covered literature, I have become a menace to Grover 
Cleveland's idea of peace and good order. 
Far too accessible, eh Mr President? Too much access. By all means 
let's not provide our electronic networks with *too much access.*  
That might get dangerous. The networks might rot people's minds and 
corrupt their family values. They might create bad taste. Think 
this electrical network thing is a new problem? Think again. Listen 
to prominent litterateur James Russell Lowell speaking in 1885. "We 
diligently inform ourselves and cover the continent with speaking 
wires.... we are getting buried alive under this avalanche of 
earthly impertinences... we... are willing to become mere sponges 
saturated from the stagnant goosepond of village gossip." 
The stagnant goosepond of the *global* village. Marshall MacLuhan's 
stagnant goosepond.  Who are the geese in the stagnant pond?  
Whoever they are, I'm one of them. You'll find me with the pulp 
magazines and the bloodcurdling comics and the yellow-covered works 
of imaginary daring. In the future you'll find me, or my 
successors, in the electronic pulps. In the electronic zines, in 
the fanzines, in the digital genres, the digital underground. In 
whatever medium it is that really bugs Grover Cleveland. He can't 
make up his mind whether I'm the scum from the gutter or the 
"cultural elite" -- but in either case he doesn't like me.  He 
doesn't like cyberpunks. 
He doesn't like cyberpunks. That's not big news to you people I'm 
sure. But he's not going to like cyberpunk librarians either. I 
hope you won't deceive yourselves on that score. 
Weird ideas are tolerable as long as they remain weird ideas. Once 
they start challenging the world, there's smoke in the air and 
blood on the floor.  You cybernetic LITA guys are marching toward 
blood on the floor. It's cultural struggle, political struggle, 
legal struggle. Extending the public right-to-know into cyberspace 
will be a mighty battle. It's an old war, a war librarians are used 
to, and I honor you for the free-expression battles you have won in 
the past. But the terrain of cyberspace is new terrain. I think 
that ground will have to be won all over again, megabyte by 
You've heard some weird ideas today. That's what we're here for -- 
weird ideas. I like reading Hans Moravec. I respect him, and I pay 
close attention to what he says. He's a true fount of weird ideas, 
and in my opinion he's a credit to the basic values of the American 
republic. I think he even makes a certain amount of sense, 
technically and rationally, if not politically and socially. 
But then again, I don't think the Ayatollahs have read MIND 
CHILDREN yet. If they had, they would recognize it as complete and 
utter blasphemy, far worse than Salman Rushdie's SATANIC VERSES.  
If Hans actually got around to creating a digital afterlife right 
here on Earth, I'm pretty sure the Moslem fundamentalists would try 
to have him killed. They'd surely consider this their moral duty.  
And they probably wouldn't be first in line, either. A lot of 
people have seen the science fiction film, TERMINATOR TWO. They 
might figure our friend Hans here as the future Architect of 
Skynet. He wants to make the human race obsolete and let robots 
rule. Doesn't that mean it'd be a lot more convenient to kill him 
right now? 
Of course we're not going to kill Hans now. I mean, not till he 
gets hi s own satellite channel and starts his own religious 
movement and asks for love-offerings.  Not till he starts building 
a posthuman brain in a box. When his technology moves from the 
rhetorical to the commercial. When MIND CHILDREN become MIND 
CHILDREN (TM) and they're manufactured by Apple and Toshiba and 
retailed to adventurous aging yuppies.  Fifty years to the 
Singularity? Fifty years to the complete transformation of the 
human condition?  Maybe. Maybe it's just five years till the day 
the Secret Service raids the basements of MIT and removes all 
Hans's equipment. As for criminal charges, well, they'll think of 
something. Maybe they can nail him on an FDA rap. 
I do kind of believe in the singularity though. I think some kind 
of genuine deep transformation in the human condition is in the 
works. I have no idea what that will be, but I can smell it in the 
wind. It's no accident that this historic period is producing 
people like Mr. Moravec here. Right or wrong, he is a cultural 
avatar. Maybe we're about to radically change the operating system 
of the human condition. If so, then this would be a really good 
time to make backups of our civilization. 
That's why I want to bring up one last topic today.  One last 
weird, science-fictional idea.  I call it Deep Archiving. It's 
possibly the most uncommercial act possible for the institutions we 
call libraries.  I'd like to see stuff archived for the long term. 
The VERY long term. For the successors of our civilization. 
Possibly for the successors of the human race. 
We're already leaving some impressive gifts for the remote future of this 
planet. Nuclear wastes, for instance.  We're going to be neatly archiving 
this repulsive trash in concrete and salt mines and fused glass canisters, 
for tens of thousands of years. Imagine the pleasure of discovering one of 
these nice radioactive time-bombs six thousand years from now.  Imagine 
the joy of selfless, dedicated archaeologists burrowing into one of these 
twentieth- century pharaoh's tombs and dropping dead, slowly and 
painfully. Gosh, thanks, ancestors.  Thanks, twentieth century! Thanks for 
thinking of us!  
Possible, it is our moral obligation to explain ourselves to these 
possible people that we might possibly offend? Possibly.  Shouldn't 
we give some thought to leaving them a legacy a little less lethal 
and offensive than our giant fossilized landfills and the 
radioactive fallout layer in the polar snows?  If we're going to 
put the Library of Congress in our hip pocket, I'd like to see us 
put a Library of Congress beside every canister of nuclear waste.  
Let's airmail the Library of Congress to the year 20,000 AD. 
There's absolutely no benefit for us in this action. There's no 
money in it. That's why I like the idea.  That's why I find it 
appealing. I think i t would be good for the soul of consumer 
society. It's a moral gesture to demonstrate that our sense of 
values is not entirely selfish, not entirely narrow, not entirely
