The Internet unraveled.

Author information



Although a fairly recent phenomenon in our culture, the Internet and its features have enjoyed a meteoric rise in use. E-mail, mailing lists, news groups, and forums provide Internet users the ability to network worldwide. The WWW, with its ease of use, has made accessing information easy, but has also created a need to learn to find and then to evaluate the information that is found. This article explores the above facets of the Internet and provides suggestions for using e-mail, locating mailing lists, searching the WWW, and evaluating the information found there. A vocabulary list is provided to assist with unfamiliar terminology. Words in the vocabulary are in boldface type the first time they are used.
