The Newberry Library Seminar on Technology, Politics, and Culture co-sponsored by the University of Illinois at Chicago, Roosevelt University, and Northwestern University present:
"Business Users and the Internet: An Explorative Essay"
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Friday, January 18, 2002, 3:30-5:00 pm
Notwithstanding all the hype about the internet, one feature of its development has been relatively neglected. Large corporate users of telecommunications systems and services have rapidly become major players in the development of this new network of networks, with consequences that are, thus far, relatively little known. This essay situates the internet within the longer-term growth of business user reliance on networks, and explores some of the ways in which such users have contributed to the ongoing development of this new communications technology.
