Life online : researching real experience in virtual space

"Annette Markham embarks on a unique, ethnographic approach to understanding Internet users by immersing herself in online reality. She goes online to interview people there, and the result is an engrossing narrative as well as a theoretically engaging journey. A cast of characters, the self-reflexive author among them, emerge from Markham's interviews and research to reveal the complexity and diversity of Internet realities."--Jacket
