Abstract: These days Internet and the World Wide Web are the hottest topics in every walk of life. The Internet frenzy is like a rogue wave, you can either surf it and have the experience of your life-time, or stay on the beach to watch it and maybe get whacked by it. It is easy to jump on the boat, but it is not clear where the long-term opportunities are. In an effort to see the big picture, we examine some desirable features and present some opportunities for interesting research. In addition to a methodology for structuring web sites, we propose a scheme for categorizing links.
