An interesting history of the internet, how we think about it and how that has influenced global government policy. Pretty well-written and accessible for an academic book. Especially interesting I thought are the tensions around the web as a vehicle for capitalism, economic growth, and national dominance as well as a democratizing, grass-roots political force, and how we conceive of "hackers" vis a vis the adults productively using computers in the work place.

Schulte examines the extent to which conceptualizations of the internet have been changing for the last thirty years. Her in-depth analysis of popular representations demonstrates a variety of ways in which the internet has been imagined - as a toy for teenagers, as a weapon and a battlefield, a tool for effective workers and a site for global capitalism.
