These are some of my early (1996 and before) essays on the Internet society. They were primarily aimed at the various excesses of enthusiasm awakened by the World Wide Web when it first broke in upon the social consciousness of America. I would doubtless write many of the essays quite differently if I were writing today, if only to reflect later developments. However, I think my observations have stood up very well in the face of these developments. I was, after all, generally writing about very fundamental principles.
See my home page for later thought on a much broader range of topics, including my central work today on genetics, epigenetics, and the meaning of organisms.
