I would like to both thank and compliment the Carleton University School of Journalism and Communication, in particular Dr. Christopher Dornan and Prof. Dan Pottier for introducing students to the potential of online journalism and for encouraging me to experiment with this new medium for this Master's research project.

This project would not have been possible without the expert technical assistance of Webmaster Roger Martin and research funding from Public Interests Research and Communications Inc.

As with all of my significant endeavors, I have drawn inspiration for this project from those who are dearest to me.

I am indebted to my parents Gary and Helen Burton, who together made me the person I am today, and my brother Christopher who unfailingly believes I can accomplish any goal I set.

I am also indebted to my partner Francis Schiller, who encourages me to set higher goals every day.

All errors and omissions in this work are, of course, mine alone.
