Peering Over the Parapet

Gee, the web is a big place isn't it? I've been having a look round recently, trying to figure out how long it will take Read On Demand to reach a dominant position.

There's so much out there though. I'm reminded of something I read a while back. Apparently when Hitler invaded Russia the German soldiers soon became totally overwhelmed when they were confronted by the vastness of the Steppes. They became disorientated and demoralised by the bleak emptiness that swallowed them up. It didn't take them long to figure out this was a war they couldn't win.

As usual their leaders took a lot longer before they realised their fatal mistake. Hm. Makes you think, doesn't it?
