Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Technical jargon tends to creep regularly into our everyday conversations, and it seems to be churned out incessantly when the subject is cyberspace. To keep a handle on it all and to preserve the record of evolving terminology in this brave new cyberworld, this useful and informative dictionary offers clearly written definitions of more than 900 words, phrases, and acronyms concerning the Internet, its history, and its use. Even more useful are the dozens of sidebars, ranging from how-to tips on "Playing in the MUD" and basic netiquette to commentaries from networking notables on "Why Betamax Died" and historic vaporware. Also of interest are the appendixes, which list numerous national associations and government agencies involved in the evolution of our wired world, along with an extensive bibliography of additional information sources. Editor Morse, who founded several Silicon Valley companies, including Amiga Computer Inc., has done a commendable job of harnessing some of the fugitive vernacular of cyberspace. Recommended for most libraries.-Joe Accardi, Northeastern Illinois Univ. Lib., Chicago
