The World Wide Web demonstrates how powerful client/server computing can be. If you are thinking of implementing client/server computing in your organization, it wouldn't hurt to first take a look at the Web.
A WWW server is an application. System managers must pay attention to the security and maintenance problems that go with any large application.
Creating Web documents is time consuming. It took me at least twice as long as I expected to write this paper. I spent a lot of the time finding and checking the many WWW links. With our 9600-baud connection to the Internet, this was a slow process. Tools for creating HTML are still in their infancy. We expect a lot of new tools to appear in the next year to help create HTML.
It's easy to waste time on the Web, but it is one of the largest and most up-to-date resources available anywhere in the world. Get an Internet connection, a WWW client program, and start surfing!
