Attila Enters the Cyber World – Iron Game History – June, 2004

In the future, the sort of information we now get from books and libraries will be gotten primarily from computers—most of which will be in our private homes. This is a profound change, and one we are trying to grapple with here at the University of Texas. One of the primary advantages of this “website” technology is that it allows people to have access to rare materials that they would otherwise have to travel hundreds or even thousands of miles to see and use. In our efforts to use this technology to make some of the holdings in our collection more widely available, we recently submitted a grant proposal to the Utopia Project, a new initiative on campus that aims to share some of the treasures of the university with the public.
