I have spent almost ten years doing the research for, thinking about, and finally writing this book. In the pages that follow, I emphasize the importance of understanding standpoint when critically evaluating information on the Internet, so it seems only fitting that I should say something about my own relation to the text.
This book grows out of my experience with Internet technologies in a wide range of milieux but particularly from my time spent teaching with the aid of technology in the classroom in 1996 at a suburban, privately funded university. Students entering college for the first time in the fall of 2008 were born in 1990, about the same time the Internet began to emerge, and they have never known a time without its existence. Now I teach in a publicly funded urban university with students from a diverse range of backgrounds, most of whom have grown up digitally fluent. I wrote this book with them in mind.
