I went on a books programme on Sky TV, and took the train to Southampton for an MTV-style discussion sitting on a couch with a bunch of teenagers. That was fun. I go and see British films when I'm London, because they don't open in the States until about three months later and I like to go home and annoy my friends about them. Her first book was 'Surfing the Internet'. Joystick Nation', an Abacus paperback price pounds . 9, was published earlier this month.

They say that "surf the Internet" means "to go purposely from site to site or to browse" while "surf on the Internet" . Thank you, Parla, for your updating information on "surf the internet". To tell the truth, until very recently, I was still judging the "internet" in their work as a wrong spelling.

They say that "surf the Internet" means "to go purposely from site to site or to browse" while "surf on the Internet" means "to browse or move from site to site randomly". Again it's beyond my knowledge to make any judgement.

Never have I read a better book on the topic. J.C. covers it exactly how it was. Today is so different - spam mail and myspace and RSS feeds, etc...

This book gets my nostalgic every time I pick it up and read it. Yes, that first review was me, "PunkaPixie" almost 10 years ago. I just had to write another review (don't know if its allowed), but THIS BOOK DESERVES TO HAVE ANOTHER FIVE STAR REVIEW!!!!! Why oh why is it being shunned to the bargain bin!?!?! LONG LIVE THIS BOOK! And bless the heart of Ms. J.C. Herz who one day, long ago, back when I wrote this review, had written me an e-mail which is buried somewhere in a text file. Wherever she may be, I wish her well!

Long live the days of IRC and usenet... oh how I miss it so.

I am staring at my copy of this book right now actually. Still proudly displayed in my bookcase. This book has always and will always be close to my heart. At 25 years of age now, I will never forget the good old days when the internet was a wee baby - long before it was tainted with the things that "could be".

This is a great book for anyone curious to know what life was like before the "mass influx" of people on the 'Net. And an even better companion for those who long to remember.

I read this book 2 years ago, when I borrowed it from the library. Since I have borrowed many, many times. It never gets boring. It provides a look on the net when the most commercial stuff was mlm scams and chainletters. *sigh* The good ol' days...

Oh my gosh, when i found this book in the "new book" section over 2 years ago at my library I thought it was cool fer the cover.
Then I read it.. oh my GOSH never ever have I ever read a book I agreed with SOOOO MUCH. The whole time I was reading about the little net adventures of J.C. Herz, I was smiling because I too have done it.. the usenet postings, the late night IRC excursions as well as the inevitable dip into MUD.
This book is great for anyone of the "olden" days of the online world. And for those vets.. feast yur eyes on the MindVox section.
