On rare occasions, Jack Myers Media Business Report is introduced to a new service that is deceptively simple and so self-evidently intelligent that we have to wonder why it hasn't been done before. Such a service is being introduced by Linkstorm, which is pioneering a new Internet navigation & web linking system. The five-year old company, originally named Content Directions, has a who's who of investors including Internet legend Esther Dyson and former Dun & Bradstreet CEO Robert Weissman. Linkstorm is building its product on the foundation of an eight-year old "Handle Web Navigation" system developed by Dr. Robert Kahn, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency director who originated DARPA's Internet Program and laid the open architecture foundations for the TCP/IP networking protocol that is acknowledged as the Internet's key advantage. Dr. Kahn also coined the term National Information Infrastructure (NII) in the mid 1980s, which later became known as the Information Super Highway.
