Using devices from laptops to mobile phones, we can connect to the Internet from anywhere and in moments search for and find information that not only helps us answer questions, solve problems and complete tasks, but also entertains, inspires and confounds us. At the same time, the web has become a place where anyone with acomputer and a connection to the Internet can readily publish text, images, audio and video.
