About this book


This is the first comprehensive book on hypermedia and the World Wide Web that includes features of second generation systems. Definitions, history, current technology and problems, leading-edge initiatives, future applications, all these are seen as an unfolding of a millennial communication medium that is not only serving but also involving even the non-technical person in a very technical world.
Much of the promise of hypermedia lies in its applications to education, and this receives prominence in the book. The new hypermedia system Hyperwave is described in detail.
The book's vision, organization, and easy-to-read style make it suitable as a source of information for practitioners and the general reader. It may also serve both as a reference book for researchers and as a textbook.
