[Excerpt from Seybold Digital Media, quoted from an Internet message]

	Danny Hillis, founder of Thinking Machines, had the following

	I went to my first computer conference at the New York Hilton
	about 20 years ago. When somebody there predicted the market
	for microprocessors would eventually be in the millions,
	someone else said, "Where are they all going to go? It's not
	like you need a computer in every doorknob!"

	Years later, I went back to the same hotel. I noticed the room
	keys had been replaced by electronic cards you slide into slots
	in the doors.

	There was a computer in every doorknob.
