Issue No. 02 - March-April (1997 vol. 17)
What has generated the unprecedented fascination with the Internet? What future lies ahead for computing as the Internet and its associated infrastructure expand? Will the network be able to cope with rising demands for carrying capacity and response speed? Will it change the way scientists, designers, artists, computer professionals, and home users work in the future? These are some of the wide-ranging questions being asked about the Internet and World Wide Web. In this issue, we address some of the questions prompted by growing network capabilities. We focus on collaborative work projects as precursors of everyday work styles in the fairly near future.
