Monday, 8 Jul 96, I read in either the Washington POST business section
or in a TIME magazine article the statement that only <some small number,
5% or 8%, I forget which> of America is on-line. GIven previously
published stats that claim Americans make up "most" of the 'net's
non-official users ... Seems to me it's going to be Looooonnnngggg time
before d/l something off the web is commonplace.
And -- once I d/l it, where do I store it? Do I tote my computer with me
to meetings so I can quote from it? Or do I print it off and schlepp the
hardcopy? If the latter, wouldn't it be easier to get the official,
nicely formatted, pre-printed version from Council rather than paying
for my own toner, my own paper and spending my time doing
something they've already done?
Or maybe not.
