Published by Lutz F. Krebs
The Internet ranks highly among the most important inventions of the last century. While initially a military network designed to withstand a nuclear war, it was soon championed by American academics. With the debut of the World Wide Web in 1991, the Internet has found its way into the common household. Today, the Internet is quickly becoming as ubiquitous as the telephone, first and foremost in commercial and academic settings but also in households. The two most commonly used services are the WWW (‘world wide web’, also known as the web or the ‘world wide wait’) and email. This book is meant as an introduction to the Internet.
