The Boston Community Information System turns your computer into a personal information assistant that monitors the news as it happens. This experiment, CommInS, tests a new way of distributing world news and features from the New York Times and the Associated Press (AP) wire service directly to personal computers via radio waves. Acting on your instructions, your computer will 'filter' this flow of information, saving the stores that match your list of interests. thus, you can walk up to the system at any time, and browse through the stores that the system has saved for you. Because your personal computer can receive and filter much more information than you could read yourself, it can help you focus and enlarge your awareness of the world. You will probably find that the system consistently finds more articles of interest on certain subjects than you do
