WWW FAQ: What is on the Web?

What is on the Web?

[Obscure technical answer deleted]

By now, the Web is becoming a mainstream publishing medium in its own right. As such, virtually everything is available somewhere on the Web. Because it is cheaper to publish on the web than it is to publish on paper or in the other electronic media, a wide range of interests are represented. This is limited only by the fact that the population of the Internet is not yet as diverse as the population of the real world. Fortunately, that is changing as web access becomes more and more readily available.

The real question is more often "how do I search the Web to find what I want?" or perhaps "where is the card catalog of the Web?". Those questions are also answered in this document.
