It was 25 years ago that I began my job as a political science professor atCanisius College. Back then we were just becoming acquainted with that phenomenon known as the World Wide Web. Very few people had access to it, though. Gradually, folks started getting dial up Internet through AOL and other means. Even so, content on the Web was limited. If governments had websites, they were fairly basic. About all they contained were a few names and phone numbers.
