The new information revolution: a reference handbook
"New Information Revolution" includes coverage of universal access, the potential merging of cable/telephone/computer companies and public libraries or post offices as online resource centers; the redefinition of community from the place where one lives to cyberspace, where groups emerge with like interests; and the redefinition of work to center upon manipulating information, telecommuting, and virtual companies. The potential for conducting education online is also examined, as well as issues of security and censorship.
This volume will interest students, educators, and citizens concerned with the emerging "information superhighway" and its implications for daily life.
