Hour 24. Planning for the Future of HTML > From Calculators to Communicators

From Calculators to Communicators

The computer was once considered a device for accounting and number crunching. Then it evolved into a device for crunching all types of information, from words and numbers to graphics and sounds. Today and tomorrow, the computer is above all a communications device; its primary use is the transmission of information between people.

In many workplaces today, you can use a computer to access business information every day without knowing much more than how to click links and scroll through long pages—and you can do so without knowing which information is coming from your computer, which is coming from the server down the hall, and which is coming from other servers perhaps thousands of miles away.
