The Internet and American Business


MIT Press





When we think of the Internet, we generally think of Amazon, Google,
Hotmail, Napster, MySpace, and other sites for buying products, searching for
information, downloading entertainment, chatting with friends, or posting
photographs. In the academic literature about the Internet, however, these uses are
rarely covered. The Internet and American Business fills this gap, picking up where
most scholarly histories of the Internet leave off--with the commercialization of
the Internet established and its effect on traditional business a fact of life.
These essays, describing challenges successfully met by some companies and failures
to adapt by others, are a first attempt to understand a dynamic and exciting period
of American business history. Tracing the impact of the commercialized Internet
since 1995 on American business and society, the book describes new business models,
new companies and adjustments by established companies, the rise of e-commerce, and
community building; it considers dot-com busts and difficulties encountered by
traditional industries; and it discusses such newly created problems as copyright
violations associated with music file-sharing and the proliferation of Internet
pornography. ContributorsAtsushi Akera, William Aspray, Randal A. Beam, Martin
