	     The World Wide Web or WWW initiative has brought the
	     vast universe of information that is available on the
	     internet to the user's desktop.  WWW browsers, through
	     their use of Hypertext Links, simplify movement around
	     the vast Web which consists of WWW, Gopher, FTP and other
	     internet information servers.  Some common WWW browsers
	     are Lynx (text mode interface) and Mosaic (graphical
	     interface).  WWW server and browser software is publically
	     available from various sources such as NCSA and CERN.
	     Mosaic, for example, is available for many platforms
	     including Unix X-Windows and MS-Windows.

  Speakers:  Tim O'Reilly of O'Reilly & Associates, Liz Stokes.

	     Tim O'Reilly is founder and president of O'Reilly & Associates.
	     As publisher, he has overall responsibility for the company's
	     editorial and business development as well as its international
	     partnerships.  He has edited and written several best-selling
	     technical books.  Tim graduated cum laude from Harvard with a
	     B.A. in Classics.

	     Liz Stokes was a panel member at Unigroup's PC Expo meeting on
