This book is a collection of articles about the influence that the recent greater scope and availability of wide area networks is having on the semantics, design, and implementation of programming languages. The Internet has long provided a global computing infrastructure but, for most of its history, there has not been much interest in programming languages tailored specifically to that infrastructure. More recently, the Web has produced a widespread interest in global programmability. It is now commonplace to discuss how programs can be made to run effectively and securely on the Internet.
