Subject: we are not surfs
Many here will want to read and, I hope, to comment on Matthew Reisz's
article "Surfdom", in the Times Higher Education for 8 December 2011, at
www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/story.asp?storycode=418343. Mr Reisz
asks, with the answer already given in the title,
> The internet has revolutionised humanities research. But has the
> development of ever-more sophisticated online resources freed up
> scholars to explore new ideas, or made them slaves to the digital machine?
