The Web has been with us for less than a decade. The popular and commercial diffusion of the Internet has been extraordinary-instigating and enabling changes in virtually every area of human activity and society. We have new systems of communication, new businesses, new media and sources ofinformation, new forms of political and cultural expression, new forms of teaching and learning, and new communities.But how much do we know about the Internet-its history, its technology, its culture, and its uses? What are its implications for the business world and society at large? The diffusion has been so rapid that it has outpaced the capacity for well-grounded analysis. Some say everything will change,others that little will change.Manuel Castells is widely regarded as the leading analyst of the Information Age and the Network Society. In addition to his academic work, he acts as adviser at the highest inter-national levels. In this short, accessible, and informative book he brings his experience and knowledge to bear onthe Internet Galaxy.How did it all begin? What are the cultures that make up and contest the Internet? How is it shaping the new business organization and re-shaping older business organizations? What are the realities of the digital divide? How has the Internet affected social and cultural organization, politicalparticipation and communication, and urban living?These are just some of the questions addressed in this much needed book. Castells avoids any predictions or prescriptions-there have been enough of those-but instead draws on an extraordinary range of detailed evidence and research to describe what is happening, and to help us understand how theInternet has become the medium of the new network society.… (plus d'informations)

It did not aged very well. I waited too much to read it ( )

"If you don't care about the networks, the networks will take care about you." This sentence from the books motivates Castells' work. Internet Galaxy examines various aspects of the network society and should be required reading for anyone living in this new millennium. ( )

Довольно общий и устаревший обзор развития интернета и его состояния на начало 2000-х годов, сделанный в качестве продолжения "Галактики Гутенберга" Маклюена. Имеет смысл читать скорее в качестве истории осмысления революционных изменений, которые принес с собой интернет, чем в качестве самостоятельной актуальной книги. Кастельс, как бы то ни было, серьезный социолог. ( )
