Good discussion, Jerry - I'm with you on the conclusion.
	But I would add: it is always important to remember that the
internet was the first begotten child of the military industrial complex
(a point recently spurned here in Ann Arbor by Catherine MacKinnon, an FBI
cybercop, the UMichigan bureauthing, and others), ARPANET.
	And that small computers were given possibly their strongest
boost from the miniaturization demands of NASA, esp. Apollo and the shuttle.
