This book presents a stunning insight on the impact of the Internet and communication technologies on society in the beginning of the twenty-first century. The author puts forward the case that the Internet is not just a technology, but the very fabric and backbone of the New Economy, and of the Network Society. It is essential that people understand its language, its logic, its constraints, and its freedoms in order to manage and to change their reality.
