It describes how there has been a series of technological developments and events that has led inexorably to the achievement of enhanced person-to-person communications, the Internet and the World Wide Web. The book marks the centenary of the first trans-Atlantic radio signal, sent from Poldhu in the United Kingdom to Marconi in St John's, Newfoundland."--Jacket.
