The first article is from the Netherlands, and should appeal to many psych-surfers. This is a fine snapshot of a socio-technological revolution in the making, a report on a
Dutch community where the Internet is already the daily way of life, by decree.
There is also some interesting commentary on gender differences in taking to the computer, and the behavior of Dutch men. I think this will be of interest to those
with a bent for Cultural Anthropology, Sociology, or Social Psychology. Perhaps a glimpse of the future. Or perhaps that future is already here?

He shares some strong views on professional organizations and calls for the "industrialization" of Psychology.
