Geared to the Net newbie, Dyson discusses the changes that the Internet has imposed on many areas of our lives, such as work, communities, and education. She is optimistic about the growth of the Internet and addresses skeptics concerns about the future of online privacy and security issues, ownership of online content, governance of cyberspace, and more.

Much has happened since the first edition of Dysons book was published in 1997, and she smoothly blends her updates into the original manuscript. The most notable changes to the book reflect the growth of e-commerce. Dyson follows the progress of the original eight companies profiled in 2.0 and introduces five new Internet business pioneers. She also charts the advances in privacy and security tools, the backlash against spam, and the overturning of the Communications Decency Act (which occurred shortly before the publication of her first book). In this version, Dyson also excerpts e-mail comments and articles from her Web site (www.edventure.com) to support the statements in her text.Seasoned netizens may find that theyre familiar with many of the controversies in this plan for the digital age, but newcomers will find it to be a valuable guideline to our changing way of life.
