Since the Web was invented by an active scientific community working in high-energy physics research in Switzerland (CERN) (see part I), it is no surprise that science and technology subjects are well-represented on the Web. In this chapter, we explore webs that present science and technology information---for public and professional education and communication as well as directly for use in research.
