Cultural, Political and Technical Factors Influencing Early Web Uptake in North America and East Asia

Chapter


Abstract


  • Today internet histories is a developing field with more attention being paid to regional histories (Goggin and McLelland, 2017) as well as pre-internet developments in computer mediated communication (CMC). As Carey and Elton (2010) argue, there is a growing acknowledgement of the many alternate developments in online services that prefigured and prepared the ground for the internet applications that became ubiquitous with the roll-out of the World Wide Web in the mid-to-late 1990s.
