About this product
- DescriptionOur society has gone through a weird, unremarked transition: once a velty, the Net is w something that we take for granted, like mains electricity or running water. In the process we've been surprisingly incurious about its significance or cultural implications. How has our society become dependent on a utility that it doesn't really understand? John Naughton has distilled the isy chatter surrounding the internet's relentless evolution into nine clear-sighted areas of understanding. In doing so he affords everyone the requisite kwledge to make better use of the techlogies and networks around us, as well as highlighting some of their more disturbing implications.
- Author BiographyJohn Naughton is Professor of the Public Understanding of Technology at the Open University and a Fellow of Wolfson College, Cambridge. He is also the Observer's 'Networker' columnist and a prominent blogger at memex.naughtons.org. His last book was A Brief History of the Future: The Origins of the Internet.
