Just heard the term "INFOBAHN" for "Information Super Highway" the other day
and thought that it was a pretty neat variation on word AUTOBAHN. This is
one of those few examples where the German word is considerably easier and
shorter than the English phrase. Maybe some of you will join me and happily
adopt Infobahn as "the" term to use from now on. :-)

Genug fuer jetzt.
