Mark Van de Walle on Web Sights

A FEW QUICK NUMBERS: 6.6 million host computers hooked into the Net; 38,796 Web servers as of June, 40,000-plus by the beginning of the new year. If numbers are generally dull, these are not without a certain allure.

Mark Van de Walle is a writer living in New York.
