The User's View of the Internet

by

The User's View of the Internet Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What is the Internet? Is it an information technology, broadcast and publishing medium, communication, or social technology? How does the Internet fit with the everyday professional and personal lives of people living in a modern democracy? Government, business, the education sector, and the media are consistently promoting the view that the Internet represents the cutting edge for human communication and access to information. In light of this, it is surprising that very little has been written about the people who are using the network and how it is being used. In fact, we know very little about the citizens of this so-called global village.

Book News Annotation:

An associate dean at the U. of Washington's Information School overviews the "user-centered revolution" of the Internet as a complex web between technology and its academic and other users.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The User's View of the Internet provides the first comprehensive analysis of public access to the Internet. It considers the evolution of the Internet through the lens of use and using. It will appeal to Internet stakeholders who need to know more about the impact of the network on their audience, market, clients, users, or constituencies. These stakeholders include business, government, Internet service providers, digital service/product developers, librarians, media and publishing professionals, educators, academics, and students.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 185-213) and index.
