webmonkey

webmonkey

(World-Wide Web)
a largely unskilled Web worker - one with a passable understanding of HTML but little else.

It is often supposed that, in the New Media food chain, there is nothing lower than a webmonkey. Alas, there is: people who barely have the skills to use FrontPage; these people are called "typists".

The B1FF of webmonkeys is personified as Bobo the Webmonkey.

Compare actor/singer/waiter/webmaster.

And compare sysape, one-banana problem, scratch monkey, monkey up, and Infinite-Monkey Theorem for other simian allusions.
