Defining who, what, where, and why
Most of the web pages that have been assigned to be browsed thus week and in past weeks have had a flaw that continues to nag at me--the websites fail to or inadequately describe/define who, what, when, where, and why they have been created. Reading through the websites is often a confusing task because their is so much disinformation or satirical commentary the web sites lose their appeal to the everyday surfer. I read CNN.com much of the time to keep up with the world news and in contrast reading these web pages begins a confusing whirlwind of "what the hell is going on". Yes, these websites exist in the creative commons, but they do not have a defined place or a defined reason for existence. The one website that does address a sense of who what when where and why is Adbusters
. I believe that an "about" section is a necessity for creating a web site like the ones we have been browsing.
