The "information superhighway" is a metaphor oft used to describethe internet, usedso often that Stefik fears we're in danger ofsubjecting the evolution of the net to the limitingimplications of this metaphor. Stefik, along with a host of prescient technothinkers and doers,examine four richer, more powerful metaphorsand their Jungian archetypes that together should expandanyone'sthinking about the cyber world... And those metaphors are: digitallibrary (The Keeper ofKnowledge), electronic mail (Communicator),electronic marketplace (Trader), and digital world(Adventurer).The summoning of the archetypes in service of Stefik's argument isless siliconpsychobabble than it is a compelling way to organizethis book around the very real ways in which thenet is being used.CONTRIBUTORSThe I-Way as Publishing and Community MemoryVannevar Bush, J.
