One might argue that the Web is the only medium where information of real value is actually increasing. Hardly noticed by the Internet's critics (and often ignored by the computing enthusiasts), scholarly journal articles, scientific reports, newspapers (including the Daily Telegraph), new legislation and reports - public information of all kinds from across the globe - is being added to the global library hourly. Links will be found to information about or from innumerable central and local government organisations, universities and research institutions, libraries and museums, publishers and booksellers, commercial firms and so on. The Web is the only source for much of the information provided at these sites. Even if we have not quite reached the open road of the information superhighway, we have long since gone beyond the point at which anyone concerned with the provision of timely and appropriate information can afford to ignore the Net. The new illiterates, it could be argued, are those who have yet to grasp this. 2b1af7f3a8
