Abstract As all good things come to an end, we have reached the final Links column. About ten years ago (circa early 1994), we as educators were scrambling to install and learn to use the tools available for accessing the vast new information resource - the internet. There was already a lot of information out there accessible via rather esoteric tools like "archie" and "gopher." Those early Internet "scouts" ("Internet surfing" was not yet accepted, as the Internet "wave" had not emerged yet) had to work hard to find useful resources Then, suddenly, there came HTML and Mosaic, which provided access to all types of hypermedia information, and made things so much more exciting. [1] Being able to see graphics juxtaposed with text coming from computers far, far away was revolutionary. It revolutionized the way we shared information with others. (Granted, the ease through which information was shared, lowered the average quality of the material available. But still, more and more useful material became easier and easier to access.)
