Culture of the Internet: Research Milestones from the Social Sciences
The authors of these chapters work in different disciplines and have different goals, research methods, and styles. For some, the emergence and use of new technologies represent a new perspective on social and behavioral processes of longstanding interest in their disciplines. Others want to draw on social science theories to understand technology. A third group holds to a more activist program, seeking guidance through research to improve social interventions using technology in domains such as education, mental health, and work productivity. Each of these goals has influenced the research questions, methods, and inferences of the authors and the 'look and feel' of the chapters in this book.
Intended primarily for researchers who seek exposure to diverse approaches to studying the human side of electronic communication and the Internet, this volume has three purposes:
* to illustrate how scientists are thinking about the social processes and effects of electronic communication:
* to encourage research-based contributions to current debates on electronic communication design, applications, and policies: and
* to suggest, by example, how studies of electronic communication can contribute to social science itself.
*An electronic version of a printed book that can be read on a computer or handheld device designed specifically for this purpose.
