How the Web Was Born: The Story of the World Wide Web
James Gillies (au); Robert Cailliau (au)
In 1993 a computer program called the Mosaic browser transformed the Internet from an academic tool into a telecomm. revolution. The World Wide Web is part of the modern commun. landscape with tens of thousands of servers providing info. to millions of users. Few people, however, realize that the Web was born at CERN, the European Org. for Nuclear Res., in Geneva, Switzerland, & that it was invented by an Englishman, Tim Berners-Lee. This book tells how the idea for the Web came about at CERN, how it was developed, & how it was eventually handed over for free for the rest of the world to use. This book covers the history of computer networking from the 1950s to 1999, as well as interviews with the key players in the story. Illus.
