<< It seems, as ever, computers are the
great equaliser. Except in cost, what if our libraries started loaning
computers? >>

"God made men equal...but Colonel Colt made them free".....or something like
that...I image a similar missive might be made for Bill Gates and Steve

As for the's getting there...project a little while into the future
and what will a multimedia net capable computer cost? I dunno...but a whole
lot less than it does now...which is about the cost of a console type color
tv I think...(been a long time since I bought a im not sure)

Don't think It'd be cost effective for libraries to loan computers...they
break easier than books...and library books are pretty badly damaged even
