go2net "Going Meta" articles

These are pieces of mine that were formerly in the "Going Meta" section of www.go2net.com before go2net abandoned its Internet column to focus on its more lucrative finance and online gaming endeavors.

Some links to proprietary go2net stuff will be broken in these versions, but the body frame, "footnote" frame and other links should be okay. Error messages in the smaller frames caused corruption in the body frame in older versions of Netscape; you might need to hit "reload frame" for all the text to display properly if you're using one. Many links to external sites are no longer valid; such is the way of the Web.
