Part 4: Exhortations (13 of 18)

I'm struck in particular by the interplay here between the functions of email and what we could call evolving shared structures (i.e. inter-linked pages). Links bring something new to the table, and I bet one could learn alot by comparing the formations of internet communities before and after the WWW. Granted, shared WWW structures are inadequate for true collaborative work, but things were much worse in the days when we only had ftp. We could call this kind of link-augmented communicating, "networking by networking."
