Dear all,

There was a reference to an "intertubes discussions" in an article in the Scientific American.

"Here’s a thought experiment. While it was prompted by intertubes discussions of evolutionary psychology and some of its practitioners, I take it the ethical issues are not limited to that field."

What does "intertubes" mean? Inner-circle? Something more technical?

    Thank you, PaulQ and Tazzler for your swift reply. It was much more simple than I thought.

    Thank you too, pob14, for the origin of the phrase.
    I guess with "new" technology, terms and phrases are transformed easily and casually,
    especially when there there's reason to poke fun at someone about it.
