The Universe Wide Web: 1. Getting Started : Simon J Morley
he Universe Wide Web: 1. Getting Started
This is the first book in the sci-fi adventure series The Universe Wide Web. When Jack Smart stumbled across the intergalactic internet known as the Universe Wide Web, little did he realise what adventures and dangers lay ahead.
The Universe Wide Web differs from World Wide Web; it’s an actual place, somewhere out there in the aether, that you enter for real. And you can use it to click and travel instantly to anywhere in the universe. It has web-rooms, chat rooms, web-games and markets; it’s a huge, labyrinthine place full of alien creatures and strange technologies. It has millions of users – creatures from all over the universe; though only one person from earth has ever logged on.
Jack discovers that his deceased father, an astro-physicist, was not only the first Earth based user of the Universe Wide Web, but also worked on its technology design, and held the security code that is at its core. This code holds the key to controlling it. But the code brings with it danger from many unscrupulous creatures trying to steal it. Jack is drawn into a series of adventures and dangers as creatures try to discover whether he knows what his father knew.
He is pursued through endless web-sites and online games, and to planets in the far corner of the universe. His life is in danger; the web is under threat. Who can Jack trust? Can he save the Universe Wide Web?
