Balancing Technology and Competencepresented by John December / my perspective
The World Wide Web gives us an unparalleled medium for communication, information, and interaction. Today, Web and Internet technologies play an important role in electronic commerce, education, and other applications. But what are we doing as users and developers of online information to improve information quality? I conclude that our goal should be to create competent communication systems and engage in meaning-making activities.
