OK, coming right up!

The most recent edition was 93.1; more information was added (mainly to
the foreword) in the 1989, 1990, 1991 and 1993 editions. If you haven't
already done so, I strongly suggest you browse our Gopher/WWW server
(addresses in my signature below) - at least the Xanadu FAQ.

That is probably true, and I believe one of our most important objectives.

I don't think we should worry too much about what either the "common man"
or the "think tanks" have to say about it - if it works, or even if it
doesn't work, what we learn will be of great benefit.

What kind of test area? That's really what this mailing list and our
Gopher/WWW server are for. Contributions are always welcome!
