History and the Web

I could also talk about using the Internet more fully: conferences on-line; papers posted to a Web site before the conference so that attendees could actually read them beforehand; articles posted to the Web; discussion groups on email or the Web that actually talk about substantive, research-based issues (perhaps a pipe dream); letters to the editor and responses to Book Reviews; and making archival texts available electronically (and the text searchable!) - but others have talked about these issues quite extensively. Some of these things already exist in various forms, but History could certainly use more of them. I'd recommend you check out the H-Net Book Reviews site, which allows people to comment on books or their reviews - a great idea!
