This document discusses various definitions of what exactly a Webmaster is, if indeed he/she is anything in particular, and what this person might do in the real world. Contributions will be warmly received and acknowledged :-)
This document is aimed at someone considering or developing a role as Webmaster, if your an experienced Webmaster, feel free to have a read or maybe provide some feedback, but you may find some of the references more useful.
A Webmaster is a strange beast, and if your considering it as a career diversion, then you may find the following pages a useful introduction to what one does, how to become one, and what skills and tools you'll need to do the job.
A webmaster is not neccessarily a designer, though you may be in a smaller operation, so design related issues are not covered here. A Webmaster is also not neccessarily a System Administrator, although some O/S tuning and performance monitoring topics will be discussed.
So what on earth is a Webmaster...
