Caption: World Wide Web. Abstract computer art depicting the World Wide Web (WWW or Web). The Earth is seen centred in a spider's web dotted with raindrops. The Web is a global network connecting thousands of host computers for the free exchange of information. Information in the form of electronic hypertext is sent along telephone lines and by satellite, to form the so-called information superhighway. The Web was created at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory near Geneva, and started services in 1989.
