Better Faster Be$t$eller$

for the week of May 8, 1995

In an effort to speed the final and inevitable reconciliation of net-culture and pop culture, we've taken the titles from the current Publishers Weekly Be$t$eller$ lists for Hardback Fiction and so-called Non-Fiction and slammed them hard against the titles of the Publishers Weekly Bestselling Computer Books for Feb 1995.

Then we picked up the pieces and rammed them through our proprietary semantic compression algorithms, so that reading the resultant list is now the exact cognitive equivalent of reading all current hardback bestsellers and all February '95 bestselling computer books, from cover to cover, at the same time -- and with perfect comprehension and total retention.
