    The Stoa Consortium is pleased to announce the publication of "Ancient
    Journeys: A Festschrift in Honor of Eugene Numa Lane," edited by Cathy
    Calloway, University of Missouri at Columbia, with assistance from
    Pamela A. Draper, Clemson University. The 20 essays in this collection
    range widely over Greek and Roman literature, history, and archaeology.

    This book has been published only in electronic form. SGML markup,
    using the TEI DTD (http://www.tei-c.org), allows the essays to take
    advantage of the Stoa's document management system and integrated
    reading environment, originally developed by the Perseus Digital Library
    (http://www.perseus.tufts.edu -- more information about the software at
    http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue25/rydberg-cox/). Structured texts at the
    Stoa can already use services from Perseus, in particular the Greek and
    Latin language tools. Over the next several months, additional kinds of
    interconnections will become available, and "Ancient Journeys" will
    automatically be able to use them.

    "Ancient Journeys" is at http://www.stoa.org/lane/.

    The Stoa welcomes proposals for scholarly projects. We can provide
    guidance on structured markup, meta-data, and other relevant standards
    and techniques. All Stoa publications are peer reviewed, and all Stoa
    publications are freely available to all readers. See
    http://www.stoa.org for further information.

    Proposed legislation to Protect vendors has potentially high costs for

    What would happen if we had smart entities running over stupid networks
    rather than the other way around? We would coordinate by substituting
    communication for planning, that's what.
