I thought the following was interesting:


<excerpt>At one point, Bill was making a fairly factual, accepted
statement - "The rapid introduction of the Internet is the most exciting
example of innovation in the march of progress."

But as he was saying this very positive statement, his head was shaking
"no," and he made this tight insincere smile. This is clearly a
contradiction between mind and body.


My perspective on that is, while I believe it, love the Net and all (of
course), one gets tired of saying this, as if it is merely hype, but if
you are up before Congress, you have to say it. If I ever have to say,
"The Internet is the best thing since Eggos" I'm sure I'd come off
apologetic. <<eeks, not again>
