A skeptic by nature, a writer and teacher more at home with ballpoint pens than computer programs, Dinty W. Moore wanted to find out for himself if the much-touted Internet and the electronic culture it has spawned is really going to be the Next BigMoreA skeptic by nature, a writer and teacher more at home with ballpoint pens than computer programs, Dinty W.

Moore wanted to find out for himself if the much-touted Internet and the electronic culture it has spawned is really going to be the Next Big Thing, or whether its the emperors new clothes. This is not a how-to guide, a giddy net-heads online magical mystery tour, or a binaries-in-the-sky futurist treatise. Instead, this book tells it like it is about the Internet. Anyone whos asked, Whos there? What am I missing? and What is it all about? will find Moores good-natured skepticism a welcome break from the explosion of wide-eyed techno-hype raging all around us.

Moore is far and away the best pure writer of the Wired School. Hes like the Stage Manager poking his head in around the set of Our Town. Funny that it took the arrival of this commonsensical outsider to finally put a real human face on the digital world.--San Jose Mercury-News.
