The World Wide Web (W3)

Welcome to this demonstration for Hypertext '91. As we do not have a network connection, we will show you hypertext which we brought on an optical disk, but not the large range of information on the "web" across the world.

How to proceed

On this optical disk

Information about hypertext in general and about the WorldWideWeb project.

Network sources

Now choose an area in which you would like to start browsing. The system currently has access to three sources of information. With the indexes, you should use the keyword search option on your browser.
CERN Information
A general keyword index of information made available by the computer centre, including CERN, Cray and IBM help files, "Writeups", and the Computer Newsletter (CNL). (This is the same data on CERNVM which is also available on CERNVM with the VM FIND command ) .
Yellow Pages
A keyword index to the CERN telephone book by function.
Internet News
You can access the internet news scheme (See information for new users ). News articles are distributed typically CERN-wide or worldwide, and have a finite lifetime.
Newsgroups which may be of general interest at CERN include
