This site is essentially an extensive list of links. The links point to other sites on a wide range of computer topics, from the abacus to Konrad Zuse. The topics are arranged alphabetically, which makes finding information quick and easy, although the linked sites vary in usefulness. In addition to the topical links, the site gives a section specifically devoted to a brief history of the World Wide Web at CERN and a set of related links. This quick summary offers a basic outline of the advent of servers, graphical interface, and the first web browsers. Also available on the site is a group of links to research projects and computer concepts of the future.
