Abstract:

If ever a subject was made for an author, Dave Barry and cyberspace are perfectly matched. Just imagine what can happen when Dave and his computer go mano a mano. In Dave Barry in Cyberspace, you'll learn how to produce attractive, high-impact documents when you have absolutely nothing to say; visit the world's largest computer trade show - Nerdstock in the desert; use Internet shorthand; chat with total strangers who may be boring and stupid; and discover the world's largest collection of viola jokes - all this and more. When you rattle down the pothole-studded information superhighway with Dave Barry at the wheel, you will be a:) and you will be LOL, even ROTFL.
