"Mr Fletcher called his invention JumpStation. He put together an index of
pages which could then be searched by a web crawler, essentially an automated
process that visits, and indexes, every link on every web page it comes across.
The process continues until the crawler runs out of things to visit."

A good article about an early pioneer.

Share and enjoy,
