The Web – the absolute basics

I’ve recently been trying to help a couple of different people get on to the web who have never used it in any form until now. It’s amazing just how easy it is to take certain bits of knowledge for granted in this situation.

So I wrote down my one page guide to The Web – the Absolute Basics in the hope that it might be of use to somebody else and their grandmother.


BBC News: Don Norman likes the new iMac. So do I, having played with it a little bit this week. A lovely bit of design.

Because of this, before the year is out, a very large number of people will have full Unix machines in their living rooms. I would never have believed it 18 months ago.
