The Internet

The growth of the Internet has been widely documented in academic and popular publications alike. This growth is due to a combination of factors, including lower-cost and faster computing, more extensive and faster networks, and software which makes Internet-based applications easier to user than before. One important aspect of the Internet, particularly in the context of this project, is the amount of information available on the Internet, distributed over a number of sites. This ability to distribute information over the Internet means that information can be made more widely available, but it also has implications for the storage and subsequent retrieval of such distributed information. Given the importance of the World Wide Web, it is expected that this will be a resource that we will use quite extensively.
