Writing this in October 2001, it appears as if the term 'World Wide Web
' has fallen into disuse. 'Internet
' now seems to be the preferred generic term for what was once a distinct entity, with 'Web
', 'Information Superhighway
', and semi-parodic terms such as 'Infobahn
' and 'Cybernet
' having also vanished along the way.
Once upon a time magazines ran features detailing the differences between Gopher and Usenet and the World Wide Web. Nowadays, everything is 'The Internet'. 'World Wide Web' is so 1997.
'Hyperlink' itself appears to have fallen from popular consciousness - people nowadays seem to prefer the less whizzy 'link' instead.
