Abstract
The concept is discussed of a utility oriented toward provision of information to anyone, anywhere, with no more formality than is involved in using the telephone. There is a need for a retailing system to provide a soft interface between the wholesale supplier of information services and the user. Requirements of communications, accounting and access sytems are discussed.
