To successfully download such a magnum opus of information, I am guessing the receivers of such a large amount of data (however zipped) would require access to eith dsl or cable modems. So we are back to big pipes and hardware again, are we not? Can you elaborate what this "educationing of the masses" would contain?

<<I've been pondering the basic question of educationing the masses of the currently uneducated.

My favorite paradigm is Neal Stephanson's "Diamond Age" or "A young Ladies Illustrated Primer".

What if instead of waiting for the hardware, we were to attempt to immplement this in software, via the WWW. The anyone could access it via an appropriately equipped Internet connection/device.

The initial version could be in english, but readily translatable.
