Subject: Re: [IP] The "Social Nervous System"

I quote Arthur C. Clarke out of context:

 "What we are building now is the nervous system of mankind, which
 will link together the whole human race, for better or worse, in a
 unity which no earlier age could have imagined."

- Arthur C. Clarke, "The Social Consequences of Communications
 Satellites," paper presented at the 12th International Astronautical
 Congress, Washington, DC, 1961, and published in Arthur C. Clarke,
 Voices from the Sky: Previews of the Coming Space Age (New York:
 Harper & Row, 1965), p. 139.
