3:30–5:00 pm

Murphy Hall Auditorium

The building of a strong Internet presence is all about content, isn't it? Great design, eye-catching graphics, clever text, multi-media elements are key, aren't they? Not according to Andrew Odlyzko, whose article, "Content Is Not King", appeared in First Monday in February 2001, http://www.firstmonday.dk/issues/issue6_2/odlyzko/. Come hear Andrew's case that communication, not content, is at the center of successful Internet applications.
