Alternative names for WWW


Berners-Lee chose the name “World Wide Web” because he wanted to emphasize that, in this global hypertext system, anything could link to anything else.  Alternative names he considered were:
“Mine of Information” Moi;
“The Information Mine” Tim; and
“Information Mesh” which was discarded as it looked too much like “Information Mess”.
