But wait! Why not use the existing web search engines to our benefit? If we all just put a unique word in our web pages, we could use AltaVista to search and only find the participating web pages. A word like "AuditoryMailingListNetBib" would be a word that no one else on the web would be using. Thus when we search, we wouldn't come up with 100,000's of matches to something like "Auditory". This would automatically form a distributed database of bibliographies where each of us would maintain our own references. Cheers, Steve --- Steven M.
