The paperclip is a Microsoft Agent. The DLLs are available from their
website, or from a book published by Microsoft Press. Agents from the MS
point of view provide a social interface. As an interface, it has a lot of
capabilities, but it was unclear how to go from content to Agent-based
delivery. You have to know the underlying programming language to make
anything happen.
