Internet Video -- One of the things I'm doing in the next few weeks is working on a video about the Internet, and the producer is looking for images to use in it. If you have computer art or digitized photographs that you would like to submit for consideration and to which you have rights, please send them to Harry Wiland at <hhw@earthlink.net>. The act of submission constitutes permission to use, so please don't submit anything that's not your work since we're trying to stay well within the bounds of acceptable use. [ACE]
