Have you just junked your most recent, instantly obsolete, computer? Are you thinking of buying your first computer? Do you find that your business and personal life have been invaded by a bewildering array of electronics--from voice and E-mail to faxes and televisions with hundreds of channels to the wildly hyped Internet and World Wide Web? Do you suffer from info-overload? Do you sometimes think we have lost our souls in a constant quest for speed, entertainment, and convenience? The Minutes of the Lead Pencil Club is a dynamic record of an ongoing meeting of minds from as far away as Tasmania, India, and Austria and as close to home as California and New York. Contributors include Russell Baker, Neil Postman, David Gelernter, Wendell Berry, Sven Birkerts, Mark Slouka, Clifford Stoll, Doris Grumbach, Andre Codrescu, and others, with comments by John Updike, Robert Hughes, Henry David Thoreau, E. Annie Proulx, Alvin Toffler, Dave Barry, Edmund Morris, Farley Mowat, Ted Koppel, Nicholson Baker, Paul Goodman, Gary Snyder, Kirkpatrick Sale, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, plus letters and news items from around the world.
