But the Web is more than this. The Web is also a powerful enabler of the activities we perform in our physical world. If were looking for a family-friendly hike to take in the early spring, we may go first to the Web to see which hikes are recommended (by fellow hikers), how to reach the trail head for a selected hike and how bad traffic is right now along different routes to the trailhead. The Web can give us ratings, contact information and directions for restaurants to go after the hike according to our dietary preferences, price-range and level of adventurousness. The Web helps us to keep in touch with our family. We turn to the Web to find and then buy that perfect gift for a friend on her birthday. The Web gives us the information we need to design a healthy plan of exercise and diet.
How can we, as members of the ASIST community, influence the directions of Web development and its impact on our lives?
