Arranged alphabetically, The Cyberspace Lexicon offers a variety of levels of information and access. Technologies are defined; innovatory organizations are profiled; key concepts are explained and 'buzzwords' clarified. Over 800 clear, concise dictionary entries, designed for quick reference, are complemented by illustrated features covering important issues. A comprehensive bibliography is also provided.
