There's nothing like revealing my ignorance to make information pop out
of the woodwork!  The sixth general WWW index I tried, Lycos, finally had
a few hits in a search for "Telescript".   Here are the most illuminating:

	CJ Silverio's informal General Magic page
	http://www.spies.com/ceej/magic.html

	The official General Magic corporate home page
	http://www.genmagic.com/

	Pointers to technical info on Telescript (some only on paper)
	http://minsky.med.Virginia.EDU:80/sdm7g/Projects/Python/TeleScript/

	Article on intelligent agents from The Economist (14May94 pp 87-88)
	http://phenom.physics.wisc.edu/~shalizi/Economist_Articles/agents.html

The General Magic home page includes references to two mailing lists,
MAGICCAP for users and MAGICDEV for developers.
