Restraining Content Explosion vs. Constraining Content Growth
As users learn new ways to explore the potential of Web, the information content in sites that are effectively explored tends to grow. Web technology is so powerful and flexible that the the limit of information management is usually reached before other technical restrictions and before we make the most of what Web can offer. In this paper we investigate the scenario where the content growth supersedes the capacity of information maintenance. We also present a strategy to deal with this problem without resorting to policies to constrain the growth of information content. By means of a case study we exemplify how a successful implementation was used to avoid the bottlenecks that contribute to content explosion.
