Description - The Net Effect by Beth Porter
Beth Porter presents The Net Effect - exploring not just how it evolved and what it does, but how it relates to the way we live. Most writing about the Net focuses on a particular aspect: its use for business, its driving technology, etc. This book aims at a broader target. It does contain some useful information about the How of the Internet, but it is more concerned with the Why of it. Stephen Fry writes: A remarkable achievement. Beth Porter has produced a clear, fascinating and provoking overview of the net. In an overcrowded market here is a book that really stands out for its authoritative mixture of knowledge, enthusiasm, clarity and insight. Without relying on technical language, Beth Porter has produced an absolutely invaluable introduction to the net and web which also serves as a superb tool for those toe-dipping paddlers who might be considering a more whole hearted entry into the internet world. A book no one should be without. Her understanding of the wider commercial, social and political implications of the net is combined with a practical and entirely sane feeling for it as an extension of the human spirit. A remarkable achievement.
Beth it as an extension of the human spirit.
