The Internet has changed the landscape of mass media. This exciting and engaging book, written by scholars from the USA, Europe and Australia, explores the ways in which people, organisations and companies are using the net to project their interests and concerns into the world. While there has been an explosion of books on the net, this is the first to offer students a comprehensive and coherent introduction to the new web-based media culture.
Beginning with an introduction to cyberculture studies and ways of studying the web it moves on to consider everyday weblife, web art and culture, web business, and global web politics and protest. Topics covered range from fan websites, web identities and web design trends to global capitalism and web allure, cybercrime and the politics of hacking, and propaganda warfare via the web. Throughout the book are suggestions for ways in which students can use the web to further their own research.
