89 Innovations Inspired by the Word "Web"

— March 16, 2009 — Pop Culture
Before the Internet, the word "web" was basically associated with spiders and the book "Charlotte’s Web." Today, however, as soon as we hear or see the word "web," we automatically think of the Internet. Take a look at these innovations below that were inspired by the word "web." We've featured nearly everything under the sun, including webcams, web surfing, web 2.0, web searching, web advertising, web marketing, and web-enabled Catholicism.

Implications - Consumers in contemporary society are attracted to items that stay on the cutting edge of development. Products that feature a modern aesthetic are appealing to those who want to keep up with the fast-paced nature of modern culture. Companies attempting to increase their number of shoppers could focus on this.
