Since it became widely available for public use in the early 1990s, the Internet has proven to be amazingly useful for facilitating communication, distributing information, and sharing knowledge. Human society has already been changed by the Internetand as new technologies develop, even more opportunities will be available to people online. However, some people have concerns about technology and privacy, the availability of new technology to everyone, and whether information shown on the web might it influence people or cultures in a negative way. This book will look at the role that the Internet and computer technologies play in society, and consider some of the questions that are raised by its development.
