Part: II PRINCIPLES OF WEB SEARCHING > THE PRINCIPLE OF THE REINVENTED WHEEL

Chapter 5. THE PRINCIPLE OF THE REINVENTED WHEEL

The Principle of the Reinvented Wheel: For most given topics, interests, and hobbies, there are already at least a few people who are interested in it, and some of those people have already put up a Web site, community, or some other resource on the Internet devoted to that topic that gathers and reviews relevant links. You can make your search much easier by using these specialty resources instead of trying to build your own.

When you first start doing serious Internet research, you might think to yourself, “There are so many Web pages, and so many people on the Internet, I've got to find exactly what I want.” And then after a couple of searches you may have revised that to, “There are so many Web pages, and so many people on the Internet, there is no way I'm going to find exactly what I want.”
