Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead
where there is no path and leave a trail.—Muriel Strode
A surgeon wants to learn more about
computer-guided surgical techniques. His colleague advises him to turn
to the World Wide Web, recommending several sites that should be of
interest. The surgeon starts with a journal site, then follows a series
of hypertext links to other sites in the field that provide updates on
techniques, research, and professional educational opportunities. He
also finds several online discussion groups where other surgeons with
similar interests are sharing information.
