Now, is that magic? (14 Oct 2005)
In an era when information can be copied and circulated across the internet in a matter of seconds, secrets have become much harder to keep.

What was once private chatter between magicians in clubs and magic shops is now public chatter on hundreds of websites, open to anyone with an internet connection. This makes life very hard indeed for organisations like the Magic Circle. Ultimately, it could undermine the very nature of magic itself.

But that is to think there is nothing more to magic than secrets, says Mr Shaxon. Magic is a skill, he says. Skills take time and effort to develop.
