Product description

Amazon Review

While most Internet directories are weighty enough to prop open heavy wooden doors, this pocket-sized guide packs a lot into 430 pages. Published by the same folks who do the popular Rough Guide travel series, The Internet & World Wide Web makes a terrific resource for travel, but it's also a good directory for your desk. The first section of the book covers the basics of the Net: how to get connected, how to choose an Internet Service Provider (ISP), e-mail, mailing lists, file transfers, newsgroups, the Web, search engines, how to create a Web page, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), online gaming, and how to stay connected while travelling. While the guide doesn't study these topics exhaustively, it provides enough to get your feet wet. Section 2 lists over 600 well-known Web sites, which you can access from the book's Web site. The third section features a well-done discussion of Net "contexts", a short history of the Net, a glossary, and "Net language", such as emoticons or the acronyms used as shorthand in posting and chat. An ISP listing concludes the guide. And if you are bringing this guide on your travels, it provides a list of 50 things to do with selections from the book. --Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Angus Kennedy served his childhood in the Australian bush. A perpetual traveller ever since, he divides his time between summers in Europe, summers somewhere in the tropics and summers in his beach shack on the Queensland coast. Unreliable, irresponsible and unemployable, he resorted to writing, helping found Internet Magazine in 1995. The Rough Guide to the Internet is his first book.
