Celebrating the Web

Just as Americans are dependent on roads for transportation and on electricity for power, the idea behind OneWebDay is that we similarly are dependent on the World Wide Web for information.

This means it’s crucial to preserve open access to the Web for all.

At Elon, OneWebDay activities were led by the Imagining the Internet Center in the School of Communications and by students in the school’s M.A. in Interactive Media program.

During College Coffee (shown in the video above), students conducted a survey and then revealed the answers:

When was the World Wide Web first proposed?  Answer: 1990

What percent of the world’s population has internet access?  Answer: 25%

What percentage of North Carolina residents have internet access in their homes?  Answer: 61%
