Cyberville: Clicks, Culture, and the Creation of an Online Town
Drawing on her own firsthand experiences with Echo and other online services she's visited, Stacy Horn will take you into the heart of today's global cybervillage by illuminating one small corner of it, where the most familiar can be the most astonishing, and where the most unexpected bonds are forged in all but pure air. She'll demonstrate, from the inside, just how a cybercommunity is created, how it shows us the truth of our lives. She'll put you, in a word-by-fascinating-word replay, in the middle of some of the Internet's most memorable and groundbreaking dialogues: no-holds-barred cyber-symposiums on the subjects of good and evil, Mom and Dad, Frank Sinatra, hate speech and censorship, romance, and (of course) sex.
