  • 8. Platform portability
  • 9. Some parting thoughts..
    • Sometimes, falling asleep in Santa Monica, he wondered vaguely if there might be a larger system, a field of greater perspective. Perhaps the whole of DatAmerica possessed its own nodal points, info-faults that might be followed down to some other kind of truth, another mode of knowing, deep within gray shoals of information.
    • - Idoru, William Gibson
    • The cost of operating several acres of virtual space able to support training, project war rooms, collaborative data mining environments, and meeting rooms for people regardless of physical location, for one month, is roughly equivalent to the cost of one round-trip airline ticket from New York to Los Angeles.
