WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT
Internet technology is a primitive precursor of the Information Superhighway, a theoretical goal of computer communications to provide schools, libraries, businesses, and homes universal access to quality information that will educate, inform, and entertain. As of December 2005 over 70 million sites were connected to the Internet.
GENIUS AT WORK
The World Wide Web (WWW) has revolutionized the computer and communications world like nothing before. The invention of the telegraph, telephone, radio, computer and Internet set the stage for this unprecedented integration of capabilities. Invented by Tim Berners-Lee in 1991, the Web has become a medium for collaboration and interaction between individuals and their computers without regard to geographic location.
YOU DON'T SAY
The History of Science and Technology answers all the what, when, why, and how questions about our world's greatest discoveries and inventions: Not only can you discover how our world came to be and how it works, but with cross-referenced entries you can also trace many intricate and exciting connections across time. This is the perfect desktop reference for both the science novice and the technologically advanced reader alike.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST), inspires in young people, their schools and communities an appreciation of science and technology, and of how mastering these can enrich the lives of all. FIRST represents a cooperative team effort by students, teachers, communities, corporations, and our government.
SPECIAL FEATURE
Many inventions have taken several centuries to develop into their modern forms and modern inventions are rarely the product of a single inventor's efforts. The bits and pieces of a computer (including the software) came together over many centuries, many people each adding a small contribution. Explore our History of Computing to learn more.

Andrew Carnegie, 1895
