The Web Was Woven In Geneva

THE WEB WAS WOVEN IN GENEVA

Your article, "Internet: How it will change the way you do business," (Cover Story, Nov. 14) presented a very comprehensible view of the current activities undertaken by business on the global Internet. While many other useful services exist, it's "the Web" that made use of "the Net" possible.

You only forgot to mention one important fact: The World-Wide Web was invented and is still being developed by CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, located near Geneva. It is a perfect example of crucial advances coming from pure scientific research.

I found your Cover Story very interesting and informative. However, it lacked one very important and basic piece of information that myself and probably hundreds of other readers want to know. How does one subscribe to Internet?

Please provide any possible information about how to access the World Wide Web. Are there any methods of accessing it from here in Saudi Arabia without going through expensive long-distance telephone calls?

Editor's note: Many online service companies provide different levels of Internet access under different arrangements, in the U.S. or internationally. Two are CompuServe (614 529-1349) and Delphi (617 491-3342). Once you are on the Internet, fellow users may be able to suggest other ways to connect.
