Name: Diana Engle

From: Michigan

Bio: Writer, reader, parent of school-age children

Area of Expertise: Advocate/Voice of the People

Topic: Getting, Sharing Information

Headline: Copy/Paste Living

Nutshell: So many pages, so little difference.

Vision: Every city looks the same, every forwarded e-mail sounds the same...how long will it be before every web site looks and sounds the same? Or are we there?

The Internet may inspire creativity but most often creativity is put on hold. We're all looking at the same sites, all reading the same inspirational e-mail, all using the same material...it's a cut-and-paste world.
