Ideally you want something in print with a verifiable publication date. A 
printed copy of "UIST '98 - Proceedings of the 11th annual ACM Symposium on 
User Interface Software and Technology" [1] might be available through 
university libraries if you can't get it direct from ACM. I don't know whether 
the 'Wired' article [2] made it into the print edition, but that's another one 
to check.
