Another log to add to the fire surrounding some dissagreement over the web's impact. A friend once told me that James Burke, creator of the Connections series on PBS made the following comparison. Just as the printing press and books disassociated knowledge in time by allowing information and knowledge to be transferred and preserved, the internet has dislodged knowledge, or at least information, from space or physical location. That's a pretty big shift if you ask me and worthy of being called revolutionary.
