Can I get back to making static dreamweaver info sites for Student Services now?


As long as you promise to distribute them on CDs Guy.


Deal! I'll send you one in the post. You start one page one and click 'next' to turn the page. Built for Netscape Navigator.

In '95, Stoll said: "Then there's cyberbusiness. We're promised instant catalog shopping - just point and click for great deals. We'll order airline tickets over the network, make restaurant reservations and negotiate sales contracts. So how come my local mall does more business in an afternoon than the entire Internet handles in a month?”

which is to say, don't forget Amara's Law, which goes along the lines of "We tend to overestimate the short term effect of a technology and underestimate its long term effect."

'Web 2.0 - what if we're wrong?' Wrong question. We *will* all be wrong about the details, and most of us will only get some of the big picture right at best. But I don't think that matters at all. In this sort of show-and-tell, it's the showing that's important, not the telling. It wasn't people *saying* that 'cyberbusiness' would work that made it work, any more than it was Stoll saying that it wouldn't work. It was people seeing it and using it. (And the implication is that I should shut up.)

And how can you go back, anyway, if you're on your way through school and have no memory of it?
