The World Wide Web has become a ubiquitous tool for finding information, performing distributed computation, and conducting business, learning and science. In order to fully exploit its huge potential as a global information repository, we need to understand the dynamics of the Web. Levene and Poulovassilis set the scene by giving an overview of the ways in which the Web is dynamic in its content, size, topology and use, and they point to some of the technical challenges caused by its dynamic nature.
