Oh this book is brilliant! (drink beer straight from a bottle "brilliant!" well not that brillaint) I'll write out some brilliant quotes for you... yes it IS that grood. I mean good and great, great and good.... (it was written in 1995)

"If you haven't heard the term "Information Superhighway," you can probably look up right now and see bats hanging upside-down from the ceiling of the cave in which you live."

"Maybe you are not wondering at all "What is the Information Superhighway?" Instead, perhaps the question that first comes to mind is "Who cares?" Of course, you probably wouldn't be reading this if you didn't care, and you should, for lots of reasons. The Information Superhighway is going to affect your life whether you want it to or not."

"The information Superhighway is now, and for the foreseeable future, where the action is. If you join in the fun and excitement, not to mentio the profit potential, of this great new resourse, you'll benefit in more ways than you can imagine."

"On the other hand, if you choose not to embrace this undeniable wave of the future, while nearly everyone else is busily climbing on the computer bandwagon, you will surely be left behind. There you will be, huddled in your cave, alone with your new best friends, the bats. Well maybe that's an overstatement. Then again, maybe not."

"Contrary to what you read in the newspapers, not every living soul in the world wants to move to the United States."

"They delight in the debate and deliberation the precedes the birth of every new term, and they fancy themselves terribly clever."

"The exsitence of an "in" crowd would also suggest the exsitence of an "out" crowd. That, of course, would be you. They even have a name for people like you - "newbies". It doesn't take a genius to figure out what this means. It's not exactly the same as calling you a worthless idiot, but it's close enough."

If you don't know what its on about, its the internet, the thing you're using to read it right now. tehehe, it meantions "information superhighway" so often in the first chapter. We (well I, but my sister was with me) picked it up out of someones recycles and I started reading it to her, and everytime they wrote "information superhighway" I said it really fast. The book's alot more funny if you read it out loud.
adios amigos!
