New Not so at all . . .
. . unless intellectual death is what you're looking for. That has always been easily found with or without the Internet.

For my needs, the Internet is just the opposite, as it greatly relieves the burden of mindless and fruitless research.

Every subject investigated, even a single word, instantly provides hundreds of easily followed avenues to related and unrelated subjects. Subjects that one would not otherwise be aware of.

My Web site, www.clovegarden.com, a massive repository of food information, and other subjects, could not exist without the Internet. On paper, only a tiny portion could be published (and only if i had large amounts of cash on hand for the expenses) and it would be much more difficult to use (no instant cross linking).

It could also not be anywhere near as accurate, as I can, and do, cross check just about everything with multiple sources - and am constantly on the watch for corrections or enhancements. Corrections can be applied in a matter of seconds.

Years ago, I transitioned my botanical information from Cronquist to APG II in a day or so. How do you do that if you've published on paper?

I remember the pre-Internet days where folks would read one book, take it as gospel, and start preaching from it. "The Coming Ice Age" was a perfect example. Today, such a devotion to a single source would quickly fall apart and be exposed to ridicule.

On the other hand, if what you're looking for is intellectual death, you can certainly find that on the Internet as well.

And, hey, you can also find a wealth of old Communist tracts there.
