This is my very personal thinking:

Net and web as words means exactly the same, if we continue trying to separate things, "we are going to fly in atoms" far from the true.
-Don't have we learn from our own history?-

Both "areas" works with multi-disiplinary and multi-cultural questions, if there is a difference, it would be were each one is applied, but both areas had the capability to complement each other.

So I humbly think we should find a name to include both areas of the same sience.

I agree these points of view!
Both areas of the same science!
But multi-disciplinary!
