Ah, the memories.

See also these three papers that were done during the months before 
that government report came out:
http://www.rogerclarke.com/II/PaperIIPolicy.html (short version)
http://www.rogerclarke.com/II/NetNation.html (long version)
http://www.acs.org.au/president/1997/acsnet/acsnet.htm (with Tom W)


Aside:  it's a credit to BCDE that they run a proper archive.

You've no idea how often my formal papers need to mirror government 
documents on my own site, because they've disappeared.
