Cutting though the exaggerated and fanciful beliefs about the new
possibilities of net life', Hine produces a distinctive
understanding of the significance of the Internet and addresses
such questions as: what challenges do the new technologies of
communication pose for research methods? Does the Internet force us
to rethink traditional categories of culture' and society'? In this
compelling and thoughtful book, Hine shows that the Internet is
both a site for cultural formations and a cultural artefact which
is shaped by people's understandings and expectations. The Internet
requires a new form of ethnography. The author considers the shape
of this new ethnography and guides readers through its application
in multiple settings.
