Internet Scholarship and Observation

Some people claim the internet is dead or, at least, ossified. From here comes news of a free 3,000 plus page investigation of anti-smoking legislation in Iowa. If you go over here, here, here, or here, as by way of example, you can flanuer your way from here to there and back again. All this hand-wringing is more evidence that the author is either sick unto death of actually participating in the intellectual culture created by folks willing to use the internet to disseminate the information and knowledge they have created or refusing to waste time in a sufficiently creative way. The fault, in other words, is in ourselves and not our intertubes.
