  • EFF's (Extended) Guide to the Internet - Conclusion
    elected vice president in 1992 Right now we are in the network equivalent of the early 1950s just before the creation of that massive highway network Sure there are plenty of interesting things out there but you have to meander along two lane roads and have a good map to get to them Creation of this new Net will also require a new communications paradigm the Net as information utility The Net remains a somewhat complicated and mysterious place To get something out of the Net today you have to spend a fair amount of time with a Net veteran or a manual like this You have to learn such arcana as the vagaries of the Unix cd command Contrast this with the telephone which now also provides access to large amounts of information through push buttons or a computer network such as Prodigy which one navigates through simple commands and mouse clicks Internet system administrators have begun to realize that not all people want to learn the intricacies of Unix and that that fact does not make them bad people We are already seeing the development of simple interfaces that will put the Net s power to use by millions of people You can already see their influence in the menus of gophers and the World Wide Web which require no complex computing skills but which open the gates to thousands of information resources Mail programs and text editors such as Pico and Pine promise much of the power of older programs such as emacs at a fraction of the complexity Some software engineers are looking at taking this even further by creating graphical interfaces that will let somebody navigate the Internet just by clicking on the screen with a mouse or by calling up an easy text editor sort of the way one can now navigate a Macintosh computer or a commercial online service such as Prodigy Then there are the Internet services themselves For every database now available through the Internet there are probably three or four that are not Government agencies are only slowly beginning to connect their storehouses of information to the Net Several commercial vendors from database services to booksellers have made their services available through the Net Few people now use one of the Net s more interesting applications A standard known as MIME lets one send audio and graphics files in a message Imagine opening your e mail one day to hear your granddaughter s first words or a photo of your friend s new house Eventually this standard could allow for distribution of even small video displays over the Net All of this will require vast new amounts of Net power to handle both the millions of new people who will jump onto the Net and the new applications they want Replicating a moving image on a computer screen alone takes a phenomenal amount of computer bits and computing power to arrange them All of this combines into a National Information

  • EFF's (Extended) Guide to the Internet - The Well
    souls My virtual community Virtual communities emerged from a surprising intersection of humanity and technology When the ubiquity of the world telecommunications network is combined with the information structuring and storing capabilities of computers a new communication medium becomes possible As we ve learned from the history of the telephone radio television people can adopt new communication media and redesign their way of life with surprising rapidity Computers modems and communication networks furnish the technological infrastructure of computer mediated communication CMC cyberspace is the conceptual space where words and human relationships data and wealth and power are manifested by people using CMC technology virtual communities are cultural aggregations that emerge when enough people bump into each other often enough in cyberspace A virtual community as they exist today is a group of people who may or may not meet one another face to face and who exchange words and ideas through the mediation of computer bulletin boards and networks In cyberspace we chat and argue engage in intellectual intercourse perform acts of commerce exchange knowledge share emotional support make plans brainstorm gossip feud fall in love find friends and lose them play games and metagames flirt create a little high art and a lot of idle talk We do everything people do when people get together but we do it with words on computer screens leaving our bodies behind Millions of us have already built communities where our identities commingle and interact electronically independent of local time or location The way a few of us live now might be the way a larger population will live decades hence The pioneers are still out there exploring the frontier the borders of the domain have yet to be determined or even the shape of it or the best way to find one s way in it But people are using the technology of computer mediated communications CMC technology to do things with each other that weren t possible before Human behavior in cyberspace as we can observe it and participate in it today is going to be a crucially important factor The ways in which people use CMC always will be rooted in human needs not hardware or software If the use of virtual communities turns out to answer a deep and compelling need in people and not just snag onto a human foible like pinball or pac man today s small online enclaves may grow into much larger networks over the next twenty years The potential for social change is a side effect of the trajectory of telecommunications and computer industries as it can be forecast for the next ten years This odd social revolution communities of people who may never or rarely meet face to face might piggyback on the technologies that the biggest telecommunication companies already are planning to install over the next ten years It is possible that the hardware and software of a new global telecommunications infrastructure orders of magnitude more powerful than today s state of
