Could the Web be a temporary glitch?

Carr, Leslie, Pope, Catherine and Halford, Susan (2010) Could the Web be a temporary glitch? At WebSci10, United States. 26 - 27 Apr 2010. , pp. 1-6.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


In this paper we begin with the assertion that Web Science is the study of the technologies and policies that support the co-construction of a linked online environment by a networked society, and we end by questioning whether the Web that we currently enjoy is a permanent and fundamental phenomenon, or merely a fashionable popular enthusiasm for a particular kind of information sharing.
