Wiretap has been in dozens of books (Planet Internet, Cultural Treasures of the Internet, Yellow Pages, etc), and innumerable newspapers, including the New York Times. It is probably the single useful gopher resource remaining on the Internet. We plan to be considerably expanding our offerings in the near future. More books, more authors.

Disturbed by free speech?

"Printer's ink has been running a race against gunpowder these many, many years. Ink is handicapped, in a way, because you can blow up a man with gunpowder in half a second, while it may take twenty years to blow him up with a book. But the gunpowder destroys itself along with its victim, while a book can keep on exploding for centuries." --Chistopher Morley, "The Haunted Bookshop"
