It's Summer 1995, the summer before I start medical school. I score a job hiking the trails of Canada's Ocean Playground - Nova Scotia. Sport Nova Scotia is creating a database of all the hiking trails in the province. They tell us they will put all the information we collect on the "World Wide Web" (whatever that is). So, no matter where you are in the world, you can go onto your computer, click on a map of the province, and all the information about the trail you want to hike will come up.
