World-Wide Web

Jeff Pack, Brown University '99 (English 112, 1996)

The World-Wide Web offers a never-before-seen opportunity for any computer user to become a publisher. Everyone these days, it seems, has a homepage with pictures of their family and friends and links to other sites. The most interesting about the proliferation of homepages is how few of them actually have anything to do with the medium in which they're based. (Which in itself is interesting only because it's unexpected - but then again, who expects a majority of books to be about writing? It's taken for granted.)
