Re: [BKARTS] Origin of BOOK

BOOK - Built-in Orderly Organized Knowledge first appeared on this list in September of 1994, just a few short months after the founding of this list and the beginning of the Internet as we know it now (No, I'm not going to claim credit for that - that glory is Al Gore's ;-). The URL for the original posting is <http://palimpsest.stanford.edu/byform/mailing-lists/bookarts/1994/09/msg00005.html>. It has since reappeared in 1996 <http://palimpsest.stanford.edu/byform/mailing-lists/bookarts/1996/05/msg00130.html>, 1999 <http://palimpsest.stanford.edu/byform/mailing-lists/bookarts/1999/03/msg00242.html>, and a few other times. The name has also varied slightly. The last reported it as "Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge device."
