The purpose of my thesis was to have the opportunity to explore the Internet and to attempt to formulate and put into use ideas which would enable the user to sort through the vast amount of information which the Internet has put at our fingertips. I examined the culture of the Internet as well its various uses and difficulties encountered by having so many different types of machines connected to one network. I used the Macintosh computer for research on the Internet as well as a method for presenting and distributing my ideas. I studied the public's perception of the Internet through its exposure in mass media and made a conscious effort to dispel the hype and fictions surrounding the Internet.
