What is a home page?

In 1995 we talked about a "home page" as if we knew what one was, but I don't think we ever had a working definition.

Now it's ten years later, and there's a place in this new product I'm working on for a home page, it's the place where you put your OPML coffee mug, where you put a link to your blog, to your resume, to your friends, to your subscription list, your blogroll, your Netflix favorites.

What else?

Obviously there are no exact answers to the question.

But I might add a "Edit My Home Page" command to this software I'm working on, and if I do it, I want to have an explanation of what a home page is, exactly.

So -- what is a home page?
