After forwarding an e-mail to his entire address book, warning them to protest Bill 602P, which would charge five cents for every sent e-mail, he finds out that the initial e-mail was a hoax. Noting how he was able to send one piece of faulty information to hundreds, the author realizes how today every individual has the potential to be a source of news.
