So often I see people who, when speaking or writing, interchange the term "world wide web" and the "internet" without really understanding the differences between the two (yes, I have been one of them). I am hoping some brilliant computer person will be able to create a hub or answer that can clarify this information for those of us who may not have a strong grasp on computer science terms. (Pictures would be really helpful, too)! Thanks for playing along!

This is close, think of telephone poles and cell towers as the internet, and the people talking to work places and businesses as the world wide web. Also, the WWW function is only one function out of many that occurs on the internet.
Yeah, telephone poles and cell towers is "how". Work places and businesses is "where" they go. It's still simple!
momfirms, thank you for sharing your answer to the internet vs www question. Makes much greater sense now.
OutWest! Thank you far a really clear and simple answer. I appreciate that you shared you know-how.
Wow, Bitman9000! Now that is an amazing answer! I love how you use common elements to define both the internet, and the www. Thank you so much for taking the time to share. Possibly a hub on the topic is in the scope of your expertise!? I'd read it!
