Netlife by Carla G. Surratt
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The central questions around which this book revolves are whether or not communication through technology constitutes so-called real interaction and whether the establishment of real community is possible solely through electronic technology. Here real is defined as meaningful to the participants, as meaningful as face-to face interaction, and the special case under consideration is communication through the computer Matrix. At present there is not one system, technical or cultural, which can accurately be called the internet. A more accurate statement is that there are multiple systems and purposes within the rubric of internetworking. The book examines IRC, Usenet, and Fidonet.
