Before the Web!

October 16th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

When I first got involved with the Internet in 1994 I bought a Best Selling 500 page book on the Internet which only had a passing reference to the WWW mentioning that it might become important. The book concentrated on Gopher (the primitive precursor of the WWW), WAIS which never happened, and the usual Email, USENET and FTP.

But how many Internet users of today have even heard of Gopher!
