Ok, this makes it easier distributing information widely. But don´t you think
there is a difference between HAVING information and understanding/knowing?

If you look at computer-subjects especially in the Linux-sector, there is
really a LOT of information available. This is GOOD. But this does not mean
that people allready KNOW (how to get it).

Where I would love to start is in creating some SGML or XML-sources of good
pernmaculture-documents. Starting with Steve Divers Introduction for example.
SGML, that means having the ability to produce for email,news,web,printing and
CD-ROM, whatever out of one document. I am just a beginner in this field, but
it is a good tool. Maybe the most important tool since mankind exists. But I do
not want to get into the details here.
