WEBster-- the Cyberspace Surfer
a new electronic magazine covering the World Wide Web/Mosaic/Internet

http://192.147.238.100/WEBster.html
(Link inactive 26 August 2004)

WHEN: First issue will be available Sept. 13, 1994

WHY: As Mosaic software opens up the World Wide Web to an estimated 1
million new users every year, a centralized information and news source is
needed to help information seekers navigate cyberspace and detect trends
that will assist them in making informed business decisions, and maximizing
the power of the Web for personal and business reasons.

HOW: WEBster will be distributed via e-mail and offer a Home-page version
to subscribers worldwide.

MISSION:
WEBster will provide a timely guide and reference for the expanding World
Wide Web and its applications. Readers will receive up-to-date news of the
latest Web servers and applications, particularly Mosaic services. There
will also be weekly features on the development of the Web, including
software, commercial, technical, multimedia and political aspects and
profiles on the people behind the headlines. All segments of the Internet
community, from the "intrigued-but-yet-to-be-connected" beginner to the Net
pioneers, will find something interesting, informative and entertaining in
each issue. WEBster also features interactive text-retrieved ad spaces for
companies that want to advertise electronically.

INAUGURAL ISSUE: SEPT. 13 1994:
Feature Article: A look at how entrepreneurial underground musicians use the
web to promote their music
Profile: An exclusive interview with Vint Cerf, the founder of Internet
Editor's Column: An introduction of WEBster
