The Realized Promise of Networking

One of the most dramatic illustrations of the realized promise of networking can be seen by touring information made available through World Wide Web (WWW).

WWW is a global information system available through the Internet. Developed at the European High Energy Physics Laboratory CERN beginning in 1989, WWW was created to allow information sharing within the internationally dispersed teams of large collaborations of high energy physics experimenters and to make possible the easy dissemination of information by support groups who work with those collaborations. It has become much more than that.
