In this issue, we explore issues questioning the boundaries of online communication in education and other contexts.


* Problems and Possibilities of Electronic Theses and Dissertations
Many universities and libraries throughout the world are now making digitized versions of traditional (print) dissertations available online. Christian Weisser, John Baker, and Janice R. Walker discuss what is being done now with electronic theses and dissertations and demonstrate the problems and opportunities of authoring theses and dissertations in non-text formats such as hypertext and multimedia.

* Technology Projects, Student Proficiency, and the Time Factor
Mihkel Pilv provides an essay exploring how to measure success in technology education, and education as a whole, by refining the measures of the evaluation process.

* WWW.Internet.Amnesia
Vanessa DiMauro and Lisa Schlegel explore one of the biggest obstacles that the Internet community faces--information accountability. The Web is user-friendly enough to illicit trust and seeming authority. But to what extend is the Internet community responsible for providing and maintaining accuracy and the information placed on the Net?


* News from the Road: The Confidence Man
Robley Curtice provides us with a report from the recent Macromedia Users Conference in San Francisco--he reports on the latest about Steve Jobs and Apple.
