          "The humanitarian direction of the Internet 1996 World
                 Exposition has great significance. I hope that it
                          will help to bring people closer together,
                                facilitate their mutual understanding,
                                    and deepen their knowledge of each
                                         other and of their environment."

             Though I miss the tired feet, stomach full of junk food
             and sensory overload of a real world's fair, the virtual
             equivalent has a lot of possibilities. Very good idea.
