From early BBS's to Facebook, J.A. Bell has been navigating the maze of the online world for years. Now he tells the story of his journey, while sharing the histories of his favorite Internet haunts along with the relationships he formed there. With a Net is funny, poignant, and informative at turns, bringing people and places of the Internet to life.
J.A. Bell grew up with movies like WarGames, fascinated by the promise of computers and a global information network. First experiencing this potential with BBS's, Bell soon found his way to the Internet, experiencing the wonder of seemingly infinite information and the possibilities of friendship and love.
Now, he tells his story, detailing his own experiences with BBS's, LambdaMOO, Facebook, and more. Interspersed with a personal history and the legends behind some of the online dens we've all come to know, With a Net provides an autobiographical look at how the Internet can impact a life.
