The website,created on a white background with texts written in Times New Roman, was created to make information over the internet available to all. In the executive summary page, Tim says,”The project is based on the philosophy that much academic information should be freely available to anyone. It aims to allow information sharing within internationally dispersed teams, and the dissemination of information by support groups. Originally aimed at the High Energy Physics community, it has spread to other areas and attracted much interest in user support, resource discovery and collaborative work areas.” In a separate page called “How can i help?“, he instructs the readers on creating their own webpages and softwares for making the web more usable. He also included a page which directed the people to available information like Bible,Quran,Politics, Lyrics, etc.(though these links don’t work now). Tim didn’t forget to mention about the people who were involved in the making of WWW project (check People).
