Inmation Superhighway - The World in a Minute信息高速公路——世界尽在你掌中Some historians say that the most important contribution of Dwight Eisenhower presidency(总统任期) in the 1950s was the U.S. interstate highway system. It was a massive project, easily surpassing the scale of such previous human endeavors as the Panama Canal. Eisenhower interstate highways bound the nation together in new ways and facilitated major economic growth by making commerce less expensive. Today, an inmation superhighway has been built - an electronic network that connects libraries, corporations, government agencies and individuals. This electronic superhighway is called the Internet, and it is the backbone(主干) of the World Wide Web.一些历史学家说,德怀特·艾森豪威尔总统在世纪50年代最重要的贡献就是建立了美国的洲际公路系统这是一个巨大的项目,轻易就超过了先前人们所努力修剪的巴拿马运河的规模艾森豪威尔的洲际公路使整个国家以新的方式连接在一起,并且通过减少贸易费用推动了主要经济的增长现如今,信息高速公路已经建成——即一种电子网络,它将图书馆、公司、政府机构和个人连接在了一起这种电子高速公路被称为互联网,它也是万维网的柱The Internet had its origins in a 1969 U.S. Defense Department computer network alled ARPAnet, which stood Advanced Research Projects Agency Network.
