This work will answer a series of questions beg*****ning with the broad question: How do social, technological, and economic changes impact the individual?

The ***** ***** this question will be found as a result of exploring the hypothesis: ***** introduction of the World ***** Web helped make the Internet so much e*****ier to use and understand for ***** average per*****n that it has ********** the ***** popular and widely used resource to search for and obtain information.

The World Wide Web, otherwise known as the internet began really ***** the invention of the computer, way back in 1962. The computer ***** 1962 looked and acted nothing like the computer of today as *****y took up inordinate amounts ***** space and processed information slowly ***** lim*****edly through amaze of complicated single line programming. Initially science and government agencies developed what w***** called ARPANET named for the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) ***** the U.S. Department of Defense, who funded many aspects of the project was designed to help remote scientists access programs and in*****mation for research. This system of networks with a maximum processing speed ***** 50Kbs in 1967, became what is now k*****n as ***** ***** or World ***** Web, through many ***** of development ***** eventually privatization. In 1981 IBM begins ***** market the first ***** its personal computers that are small enough for individual use, and in 1984 Apple ********** the Macintosh personal computer.

By the late 1980s ***** growth ***** the system ***** so great that originators could not keep track of it in any substantive way ***** by 1992 the WWW.holdsa strong position ***** a technological phenomena that effects ***** millions of people a day in some substantive way;

***** number of networks exceeds 7,500 and ***** number ***** ***** connected passes 1,000,000....The challenge to the telephone network's dominance as the b*****is for communicating between people is seen for the first time; the Internet is no longer just for machines to talk to each other...The WWW.burstsinto the world and the growth of the Internet explodes like a super*****va. What had been doubling ***** year, now doubles in three months. What began as an ARPA experiment has, in the span of ***** 30 years, become a part of ***** world's popular culture.

It is safe to say ***** initially and even late in***** the 1990s the WWW.wasutilized *****
