Want to be more assertive in life? This former dominatrix will show you how It’s a decade since Kasia Urbaniak hung up her whip.

Torching the Modern-Day Library of Alexandria You were going to get one-click access to the full text of nearly every book that’s ever been published. Books still in print you’d have to pay for, but everything else—a collection slated to grow larger than the holdings at the Library of Congress, Harvard, the University of Michigan, at any of the great national libraries of Europe—would have been available for free at terminals that were going to be placed in every local library that wanted one.

Books would become as instantly available, searchable, copy-pasteable—as alive in the digital world—as web pages. It was to be the realization of a long-held dream.
