... I promised to post a short summary of the WorldWideWeb project. Mail me with any queries.
WorldWideWeb - Executive Summary
The WWW project merges the techniques of information retrieval and hypertext to make an easy but powerful global information system.
The project started with the philosophy that much academic information should be freely available to anyone. It aims to allow information sharing within internationally dispersed teams, and the dissemination of information by support groups.
