April 1994. Historical interest only! (I entirely omitted to
explicitly mention the World Wide Web ... but, in my defence,
Mosaic had only been released in September 1993;
and the first First International
WWW Conference, didn't happen 'till May 1994. I did mention
that "... the Internet (sic) now allows authors to publish their
works with absolutely minimal set up costs ... given the ease with
which the Internet will connect authors and users of published
materials, allowing almost instantaneous access and critical
feedback, I suspect that the Internet will rapidly become the
publishing medium of choice for many many purposes."!)
