Abstract

At one point in an episode of the campy Batman TV series of the 1960’s, Batman came up with an obscure fact about ancient Egyptian history. Robin looked at him, totally in awe, and said, “Gee, Batman, isn’t there anything you don’t know?” Batman replied (seriously), “Yes, Robin. A few things.” From the crystal ball to The Library of Congress to HAL, the computer in the movie 2001 A Space Odyssey, we seem to have developed something of a fanciful obsession with the concept of omniscience. Then, along came the Internet and the World Wide Web and that fanciful obsession has turned into a cross between an expectation and a demand as a birthright.
