The arrival of the information highway has been hyped as the greatest change in how humans live and work since we captured fire. What are its implications for Canadian society? The authors present a thought-provoking examination of the new digital technologies, considering particularly the effects they might be expected to have on employment, sovereignty, community and culture in Canada. They trace the information highway back to its military origin, guide readers through the maze of corporate players promoting its development, and stop to explore the wide-open culture of the internet. Lost in Cyberspace? is a pioneering look at the influence of new digital technologies on Canadian society.
