Cheatsheet for the Internet (1993)

Bill Thompson commissioned me to draw this cheatsheet when he worked for training company “Computer College”. I recently found paperwork that dates it accurately to October 1993.

The WWW section describes non-browser (i.e., telnet) navigation of the World Wide Web. This cheatsheet came out just as the NCSA Mosaic web browser was released in beta. The online world was changing, rapidly.
