Conference paper
Part of the Studies in Classification, Data Analysis, and Knowledge Organization book series (STUDIES CLASS)


This paper is a compact written version of an invited paper presented on the occasion of the 21st Annual Meeting of the German Society for Classification. It is structured into three parts. In the first we try to show how WWW is starting to influence all kinds of areas of our lives, and in doing so new and unforeseen phenomena and problems arise. In the second part we explain how modern WWW systems are starting to reduce the problems discussed. And in the last part we analyse a number of statements often made about WWW that — when carefully analysed — turn out to be superficial, if not incorrect. We do not include many references to written papers, but rather pointers to further information on the WWW.
