The Web is not a network of computers, the Web is a network of people ~ Sir Timothy Berners-Lee
The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard internet protocol suite to serve several billion users worldwide. It is a network of private, business, government and academic networks that are linked by an array of electronic, wireless and optical communication networking technologies. The Internet carries an extensive range of information resources, including the hypertext documents of the World Wide Web. Many search engine companies like Yahoo, Google, Microsoft, McAfee and so on catalogue the world wide web. This catalogue of information is then packaged as a 'one stop shop' information resource for the general public to access. How good any search engines is, in attracting users, is reflected in how big, or small, the opportunity shows itself to be in terms of being able to value add with income generating trading practices. In 1990, university lecturers Cailliau and Berners-Lee not only changed the way the internet was managed, but probably unwittingly, fostered the introduction of global business trading practices; The significance of which is yet to reach its peak.
