The Internet R-evolution
- Public awareness of the Internet dates primarily from late 1993
when US VP Al Gore made his first "Information Superhighway" speech
and NCSA released Mosaic for the Macintosh and PC-compatibles.
- 1994 produced increasing media exposure and the Net appeared to
have the "critical mass" needed to overcome the "chicken and egg"
problem which had afflicted early information services.
- 1995 saw serious business involvement and the growth of Internet
services providers catering for that business.
- 1996 will see designs appropriate to this new medium which will
soon appear almost magical.
- The explosive growth of Internet is being driven by "latent user
demand" at least four times stronger than for desktop publishing.
