"Toward the end of the 20th century, the advent of the World Wide Web marked the first era in which any individual could have a means of exposure on a scale comparable to that of mass media. For the first time, anyone with a web site can address a global audience. Although a vast amount of information, imagery, and commentary (i.e. "content") has been made available, it is often difficult to determine the authenticity and reliability of information. After 4 decades of television culture (which was an oral and visual culture), the rise of the internet marks a move to text culture (search, email)."--Sholem Stein, 2006
