The Internet is a unique communication medium. It is very different from everything else humans use to communicate, be it TV, phone, radio or newspapers.
People interact with their computers and the Internet differently than they do with other media. They click on links and buttons, navigate their pointing devices to drop-down menus, fill out forms, and interact with website elements and other humans via chats and forums.
For all these reasons, you shouldn’t simply copy other media and transfer them to the Internet. This would mean ignoring advantages of the web technology. For example, designing a website that will function like a newspaper without any additional features is a true waste of the capabilities of the Internet.
