             Global Network Navigator *Launched*

            An Internet-based Information Center

     The Global Network Navigator (GNN), our free Internet-based 
information center, is up and running.  GNN consists of a regular 
weekly news service, an online magazine, The Online Whole Internet 
Catalog, and a global marketplace containing information about 
products and services.

     Global Network Navigator is an application of the World Wide 
Web (WWW), developed at CERN in Switzerland.  Most of the current 
development on World Wide Web technology is centered at the National 
Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) in Champaign, Illinois.   
NCSA's Mosaic is a World Wide Web browser available for UNIX systems 
with beta versions for PC Windows and the Macintosh also available. 
Any World Wide Web browsers can be used to access GNN as well
as other network services such as gopher and WAIS. 

                What's in the first issue 

     The premier issue of GNN Magazine assesses the public interest 
in tapping the potential of the Internet. The U.S. Government seems 
to be looking at the Internet as the model for a National Data 
Superhighway. This infrastructure can work for many people, including 
businesses, but just how will it work and who will pay for it?

                Some interesting statistics

     *  GNN has 600 (not around, not approximately, but 600 on the 
        nose) outside links  

     *  GNN has 5,088 internal and external links

     *  GNN has 44,978 lines, 230,703 words, and 1,918,553 
        characters.  If we printed this out on a printer getting 60 
        lines per page, we'd see a stack of 749 pages, probably about 
        3 inches thick.
