Summary

People can be your greatest research resource, as long as you remember that they are people, and not “tools” for your use. In this chapter, you learned about four ways you can connect to other people on the Internet—from mailing lists, newsgroups, discussion forums, and knowledge-sharing services.

Your ability to effectively use these resources is partially a matter of knowledge, but mainly a matter of attitude. To truly leverage the power of the Web, you need to think of it as a giant network that connects people to people—not just computers to computers. When you remember this, you’ll think about what people and resources are available the next time you need to research information using the Web.
