From the Publisher
“A sophisticated and readable survey of the myriad facets of cyber-culture.” —Future Survey
“This is a marvelous book for use in both graduate and undergraduate courses in media and society, new technologies, or urban anthropology.” —Communication Booknotes Quarterly
With chapters arranged from to popular culture writer Andrew Calcutt shows how paradoxical aspects of the Internet reflect contradictions underlying all of society. His essays on the technological and social aspects of the Internet are permeated by an optimism about the state of humankind. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
