Apparently Napoleon Bonaparte said “A good sketch is better than a long speech” and from that we get the saying “A picture is worth a thousand words.” I don’t know who chose 1000 words – it could be only 10 words, or it could be 10,000, couldn’t it?
The blog Wordless Wednesday encourages photographers to post links to photos that don’t need descriptive words because the photo speaks for itself. That appealed to the lazy side of me, so I chose this photo, which I thought I would call The World Wide Web – a Bugs View.
So far so good, except, does the photo really look like the World Wide Web? I consulted Wikipedia and they told me that the World Wide Web is “a collection of text documents and other resources, linked by hyperlinks and URLs.” They even included this handy diagram:
Certainly looks a lot like my photo, but just to be sure, I enlarged a section of the photo in order to get a closer look.
Yes, my web photo looks an awful lot like the diagram, don’t you think?
So, let me see. Two photos, one diagram and almost 250 words – I don’t think I’m the Wordless Wednesday type.
