John Paul Fullerton stated the www is already like a data warehouse but I
strongly disagree. The world wide web is like a mad monk's library. There
is an awful lot of very interesting finds and useful knowledge available
on the web, but finding that information is very difficult. There is no
uniform reference guide or key to web. The very nature of a warehouse on
the other hand is one of organization. Warehouses are designed to make
life easier and allow work to be done more quickly. The web has no
underlying organization and only makes life easier once one has learned
the sky so they can then navigate by the stars.
Because e-mail can be altered electronically,
the integrity of this communication cannot be guaranteed.
