MIT Press, 1993 - 411 páginas
Global Networks takes up the host of issues raised by the newnetworking technology that now links individuals, groups, and organizations in different countriesand on different continents. The twenty-one contributions focus on the implementation, application,and impact of computer-mediated communication in a global context.
Previouslylimited to scientific research, global networks now have an impact on social, educational, andbusiness communications. Individuals with a personal computer, a modem, and some simple software canjoin a new social community that is based on interest, not location. GlobalNetworks, which was written largely with the assistance of the internet, provides anunderstanding of the issues, opportunities, and pitfalls of this new social connectivity. It looksat how networking technology can support and augment communication and collaboration from suchperspectives as policy constraints and opportunities, language differences, cross-culturalcommunication, and social network design.
