Title: Concrete On The Internet
Author(s): James M. Shilstone Jr.
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 25-27
Abstract:OK, you've heard about the Information Superhighway, see the hype about getting on line with Prodigy, America Online and Compuserve and now you want to "surf the 'Net." Terrific!! Off to the local computer store you go, buy a modem and some software, spend a couple of days on the phone with various technical support departments, and you finally get the message that says you are on line: "CONNECT 14400." So where do you go from there? Where is all the neat stuff that is supposed to be on the Information Superhighway? There's a signpost up ahead, but in the back of your mind you hear Rod Serling saying that you have entered The Twilight Zone.
