News from Cyberspace
ó Tony Rogers


Thus far, our infant Internet site bikwil.com is getting but a modest visitor count. Mind you, itís already been registered by over 45 major search engines and ezine directories, so we must be doing something right. Next issue, in the Web Line column, I hope to refer you to some Internet places that have been particularly kind to Bikwil.

For the benefit of newer readers or those who donít have Internet access, here is an extract from our Web site that explains Bikwilís genesis. I have quoted this because questions have been asked in Various Houses as to the significance of the recently added prehistoric watermark behind the Colophon box below.

Hereís the background. In the mid 1990s, while a group of like-minded friends were enjoying lunch together,

. . . the phrase "small dinosaur" got coined to convey the meaning "we are small creatures who enjoy waxing passionate on topics of value that most of the modern world appears to deem 'old-fashioned' or even 'extinct'" . . . Tony [Rogers] and several other compatible types were soon recruited into this proto-society of neo-Mesozoic iconoplasts. Many conversations later, Bikwil came into being as a . . . newsletter, with the aim of sharing our enthusiasms with a wider community.
