Technology affects the form its content takes; or to put it in broader terms, the nature of the “means” influences the nature of the “end”. When a person articulates a thought, or – as now – when they write it down, the physical act of articulating gives it a form that is particular to the act. In the same way, when the web is used to publish content, the content adapts to the nature of the technology. The suggestion here has been that the web, as a particularly flexible technology, has the potential to produce a more variegated approach to content, or, relatively speaking, a less restricted approach that can more adequately represent the natural range of differences.
