The variety of applications, databases, and information technologies makes it difficult to locate and retrieve information or applications that are otherwise openly available. The promise of the World Wide Web was that it was a paradigm for organizing and distributing information. Under this project, we looked at how we could more tightly couple the Web with the UNIX operating system for exchanging information, connecting programs and data, and facilitating collaboration between people in a more natural way.
