Editor's Note: The following piece by Bruce Byfield is part of our collection of "classics"--articles that stand the test of time no matter how many technologies come and go.

Every man is mortal:
But the good name never dies
Of one who has done well.
--Havamal (Translated by W.H. Auden and P.B. Taylor)
