I'm one of the folks acknowledged in the book. But to me that just means that I know this dictionary very well. In NetLingo, we are offered quite a supply of new and useful words. Words that were invented just a few years or weeks ago, with the birth of computers and the rise of the Internet. As the author, Erin Jansen, says, this vocabulary of the Internet represents a new language. Having grown up working in the Internet industry on both coasts, and having run an award-winning Internet version of the dictionary, NetLingo.com, Jansen is uniquely qualified to document this language. And we couldn't have a more user-friendly guide than NetLingo: The Internet Dictionary. Jansen has taken pains to define everything in terms her mother would understand -- without a whiff of condescension. If you e-mail, chat, use Word, instant message, work on networked computers, or just surf the Internet, you'll get a lot of mileage out of this dictionary. Anyone who studies or writes about computing will find it an inspired demonstration on how to keep tech talk simple. If you're a new user, a trainer, or a pro who is suddenly surrounded by jargon from the outer realms of computing, keep NetLingo within reach. NetLingo should be considered standard equipment with any computer -- and glued to every Webster's as a supplement. Let¿s not let the jargon stop us from taking advantage of computers and the Web. Once we have access to the vocabulary, we'll get savvy in all sorts of ways.
