Speaking Geek and Other Bloopers

As I have announced in the previous posting, Johnson (2003) has identified a couple of mistakes that publishers of Web sites frequently make, as they may not be aware of the communicative dilemma of Web texts. Some very basic ideas are given in this article in order to sensitise the readers of my blog to make up their minds about something so trivial – but with an enormous impact on successful communication.

Remarks on Terminology -or- The Primordial Ooze

To be as precise as possible during the following discussions, I will introduce some of the very basic concepts from computer science and ‘Web jargon’. Occasionally, certain expressions are used inappropriately among Internet users but in literature as well, which may cause confusion and misunderstanding. For a profound discussion of my topic, as it is strongly related to Internet issues, defining particular concepts will be necessary, as there are so many different notions at which even experts on their fields often stumble1. For that purpose, I have picked out definitions from some of the most accessed online glossaries of computer and Internet items. Web professionals may forgive me for coming up with Adam and Eve again, but I often recognise wrong usage and spelling which should better be clarified right from the beginning.
