As a childhood fan of old-time radio shows like The Shadow and Orson Welles’s infamous
War of the Worlds broadcast, I often wondered what it must have been like to create
a new mass medium from scratch. The creators of radio entertainment in the 1930s
and 1940s were operating without a rulebook—the possibilities before them in the “theater
of the mind” were limited only by their imaginations, actors, and the need for a good
sound effects person.
When the World Wide Web came into our lives in the mid-1990s, I didn’t have to wonder
any longer. In the space of a few years, a quiet corner of the Internet grew into a mass
medium to which millions of people turn for information.
People are using this amazing new medium to shop, learn, communicate, play, and teach.
A network that once was occupied by a few thousand scholars, students, and military
officials is now as ubiquitous as television. People who don’t even own computers are
familiar with Internet companies such as Amazon.com, Yahoo!, and eBay. Thousands of
new Web sites are launched each day by a variety of publishers—corporations, small
businesses, organizations, and individuals.
Millions of people are putting themselves and their companies on the Web, even if they
don’t consider themselves “computer geeks” by any stretch of the imagination, publishing
interesting sites for people all over the world.
If you want to be one of those people, you’ve picked up the right book.
