If one could a snapshot of the phenomenon in human communication known as the World Wide Web, at any singular moment in time, as the instant this very text is processed by a reader, one might exhaust his or her own vocabulary in search of the most appropriate terms to use to best classify, and accurately explain the characteristics of the the resulting volume of data.
In my own attempt, venturing upon such a bold expression, I am inclined to wonder of an extraordinarily vast text, written by a multilingual group of authors, published in the most technologically advanced means of sending communications transmissions, at once accessible via pioneering media prototypes as well as the multimedia currently available, to be used by the general public yet simultaneously restricted in certain sections as intended for private access only– a duality made possible through the interactive nature inherent to modern computing, familiar to many users as a medium for expression, for offering a practical client data manipulation interface, for entertainment, or countless other purposes, each of which are not uncommon to the public as an integral element of daily news– available through countless individually operable, yet interconnected, so-called web applications; computer programs embedded within the data transmission of the consumable text, audio, video, or other media connected to the global network, making up what is popularly known as the worlds largest computer application which is itself, forever changing and as such, in the form of such a snapshot– in mere milliseconds– is rendered obsolete, and in practical terms, incompatible and useless to coexist with its successor.
(phew! that was a mouthful!)
Remembering the World Wide Web as a Learning Resource
View the sub-pages here to learn about technique for successful on-line research, references cited from my own research, and other entries pertaining to the World Wide Web (i.e. WWW) as a source-of-learning; scholarly resource.
I’ve decided to include a section, which I’ve titled Professors. Those listed may not be Professors in the common sense of the word, but as related to the Web, they fit into a unique group of individuals, who– if a tactile University of the World Wide Web were to exist– would likely be considered among the Faculty candidates!
