Geert & All,

I've been out of the email loop due to some monkey business
between AT&T and Yahoo, so I'll just try to pick up where
I last left off.

The most "prolegominous" question that comes to mind when
I read your acronym, CPOV, would probably have to be this:

| What are the conditions for the possibility
| of critical points of view arising, surviving,
| and thriving on the Web?
