If your impression of the Internet is formed by the mass media, it's likely you have the common misconception that it is "one third retail, one third porn, and one third lies."

To do this, the authors have consolidated materials from various sources. The authors have some caveats and do come CYA about the scope of the task and their selection of specific topics, etc.
