A scant generation ago (twenty-five years), the World Wide Web—“an internet-based hypermedia initiative for global information sharing” —was largely a laboratory phenomenon. In 1994, the Clinton Administration urged world leaders to develop a global information superhighway, and the Information Age raced upon us. Now, Facebook has more than one billion accounts and most of us are constantly deluged by volumes of electronic information through e-mail, texts, social media, the Internet, cable systems, and others.
