Elmer, Greg
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v14 n2 p182-91 Jun 1997
Investigates significance of the index in the process of mapping and formatting sites, spaces, and words on the Internet as well as diagnosing, tracking, and soliciting users. Argues that indexical technologies are increasingly called upon by commercial interests to automate the solicitation process whereby entry into an Internet site triggers the accumulation of a user's demographic and psychographic data.
