Dave McFarland commented on a message:

   I agree, "Web Science" implies a lot including technical details
   of the Web such as infrastructure, transmission protocols, and
   more computer-science type topics that seem outside of OWEA's
   scope. In fact, I think the White Paper kind of assumes that
   everyone knows what we're talking about when we say "web
   education." My interpretation of OWEA, InterAct, the We Rock
   Summit is that "web education" is really about educating the
   producers of Web content and the builders of Web sites. It's not
   about computer scientists working on the behind-the-scenes
   aspects of the Web, nor is it for the typical "consumer" of web
   content. I think we all just understand that because of our
   various roles in education, but for people who are learning
   about this organization it's probably good to be clear exactly
   what type of education we're talking about and for whom it's
