This chapter returns to the topic of the hierarchy of the modern disciplines, and also offers some thoughts about the new genres that are proliferating in cyberspace, apparently beyond the reach of all academic programs. The genres of cyberspace are not expected to replace academic disciplines or the genres they have bred anytime soon. Disciplines are too inertial, and too many people have too much invested in systems of credentialization and evaluation simply to let established practices go. Nor will society's appetite for easily managed information likely diminish in the near future.
