Information at Your Fingertips
Information at Your Fingertips was an initiative proposed by Microsoft co-founder and CEO Bill Gates in the early 1990s; it apparently formed much of the thesis of his book. It was supposed to make it easy for users to find any information they needed.
The phrase "information at your fingertips" did not originate with Gates; "as far back as the 1970s, the motto of the Information Industry Association was ”Putting Information at Your Fingertips”" , and the ideas he attempted to convey under that name may in fact have originated at Xerox PARC .
