The wondrous world of the World-wide Web

The wondrous world of the World-wide Web

By Nancy Lee Wolfe (HR Development/Content Manager)

"In the beginning was the Word  . . .”  Now, the World-wide Web is totally dependent on the word.  This world is a remarkable place and the tour has scarcely begun.

Here we click Icons and Images.  We talk to Servers and wander through the Web.  We learn the vernacular of the millennium.

The WWW is a fascinating creation.  It is a testament to the human spirit -- a celebration of the ingenuity of mankind.  Swift, sure, accumulative.  It is the essence of man.  His image. 

Anyone can easily write anyone from George Bush to Busch Gardens.  A child can do it.  Freedom of speech and thought prevails.  How differently history would read had the French Resistance had access to this world.

Still, that same old argument surfaces:  Good vs. Evil.  Who will control the high ground?  The World-wide Web is the highest summit ever known to man.  Whether it is Temple or Tower of Babel, time will tell.  Either way, Biblical references seem to apply.

Come visit the World-wide Web as often as you can.  You will discover it is omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent– just like God and Santa Clause.
