   The Technology Revolution explores how the introduction and widespread acceptance of the Internet is changing our lives. This book examines the ways - both large and small - in which the technology introduced by the Internet and popularized by the Web is affecting organizations and individuals, business opportunities and recreational pursuits, the composition of our local communities and the rise and relevance of global virtual communities. It describes why the changes this new technology has brought constitute a revolution, and it looks at the significance of this revolution with respect to our growing dependence on technology, how we communicate, how we locate and publish information, and how we socialize.
   The Technology Revolution explains:
  • How information access on the Internet is impacting our privacy.

  • Why security is considered key to the Internet's future, and the role that ‘trust’ will play in delivering security.

  • How Java became the 'next big thing,’ and what Java's technology contributes to the Internet.

  • How the Internet created the 'Digital Divide,’ what this division looks like, and what it means.

  • Why the Internet is far greater than the sum of its parts.

  • What caused the dot com boom and why the 'bubble' burst.

  • How the Internet is responsible for building new types of community structures.

  • Why the Internet is the revolution of our times.
