Submission Replies Journal of Universal Rejection 2011-present As an editor at the Journal of Universal Rejection it was my responsibility to evaluate and respond to submissions when the Editor-in-Chief assigns them to me.

Internet Virus Antidote, with Richard Brodie The article is here. 2003 I saw an earlier version of this page, dropped Brodie email suggesting a few changes, and he enthusiastically encouraged me to rewrite the page. So I did.
The Virtual Village on the Edge of Cyberspace From the proceedings of The Second International Cyberspace Conference 1991 In 1991 the on-line world we all call home was very new.
