eWorld was Apple Computer, Inc.'s public gateway to information sharing. Started in 1993, eWorld was the portal for anyone who owned a Macintosh and wanted to share information, chat or send e-mail to other Macintosh owners. eWorld was a closed system, as the Internet was nowhere in sight to open it's doors like it is today.
Here is an example of the opening screen.
The STAAC Group did the prototyping of a version of eWorld. Learn more here.
