The Good Web
Nick Carr (for one) legitimately highlights some of the problems with the World Wide Web: pornography, moribund & repetitive information ("echolalia" he aptly called it), reinforced errors, ranting. He correctly and helpfully cited examples on Wikipedia that rightly embarrass the concept.
For cases, however, that assert the true balance, see Wikipedia's entry for OpenDocument...or the one for Herbie Hancock: elegant, professional, well-organized, informative; in a word, 'beautiful.'
The Web is takin' off and the best way to make it better is to...ahem...make it better. The inner beauty of the Web is that it's our personal responsibility, and opportunity, to do so.
