“Someday, in the comfort of your home, you’ll be able to shop and book electronically, read instantly updated newswires, analyze the performance of a stock that interests you, send electronic mail across the country, then play Bridge with three strangers in LA, Chicago and Dallas. … $5.00 per hour.”
