Research output: Other contribution


In this paper we begin with the assertion that Web Science is the study of the technologies and policies that support the co-construction of a linked online environment by a networked society, and we end by questioning whether the Web that we currently enjoy is a permanent and fundamental phenomenon, or merely a fashionable popular enthusiasm for a particular kind of information sharing.
