The problem is the i.e. instead of e.g.  
that closes the door to understanding and turns public 
welfare into a private party:  the burglar's 
approach to wealth and fame.

So much valuable work has had to be 
reinvented and so much history has been distorted 
because the webSters cannot conceive of a 
time before 1993.   Thus Jakob Nielsen can 
claim to invent a known technique and Sun 
can claim a patent for prior art based 
on the lack of  accurate historical knowledge 
transformed into webTrusisms that are false. 
The world has to absorb it, and we are certainly 
worse off.  Until the ethics of the web promoters 
improve in this regard, they should be ignored. 

I can think of a lot of investors who wish they had. 
I can name two major vendors starting a war with it. 

The essential task is to identify and apply means to 
ensure "closed systems [of definitions] do not create systematic 
distortions in communications". - Gruber
