        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?
