well folks, i'm taking the next few weeks off from blogging on account of an inordinate amount of studying i need to do in preparation for my comprehensive exams!

i leave you with this article from Time Magazine circa 1965:

"On the other hand, scientists dream that one day a scholar will be able to quiz a regional computer by telephone from his office; whereupon the answer, perhaps from a paper by a foreign colleague, will bounce off an orbiting communications satellite first into a simultaneous translator and then on to the scholar's TV screen."
