Symposium Week #9

Is a network just many webs?

This was the question I asked in our last tutorial class.

In terms of nodes I thought that the web was the same thing. I thought of the web in terms of social webs or networks which would be a network. When we talk about webs it is more of a concept of the ‘Internet’. When I thought about it in terms of if there were two Internets would they compete against each other?

If webs just made up many networks that all connected together. Betty brought up that they would then compete against each other. Do networks have to work with each other to make it better or just have some kind of relationship? 

I guess the important thing to remember that the concept of the web means that there is a centre. However if each node was a centre then they would compete against each other rather than work together.
