Writing from City College, one end of the original BITNET connection linking
CCNY and YALE (so I've been told), I began giggling and Santa-Claus-dreaming
about the games one could play with the UVa system. The exquisite labors of
community-building, funding, training, and actively applauding of
accomplishments that David Gants exhibits in his description should be a model
held up to all of our local librarians and local computer services folks. Now
we can hope that the new guys in Washington hear about these possibilities.
The idea of a post office worked such a revolution, as did the idea of the
easy-access public and university library. The basic drives seem to be a
spirit of generosity and a commitment to free exploration of possibilities.
Hey, sounds like art.
I'll be forwarding your description of the UVa system to my campus friends.
