In the tradition of classic travel literature, this "technical travelogue" reveals the incredible scope and diversity of the Internet--the massive worldwide computer network now connecting seven million people in 33 countries, and growing at a rate of 20 percent per month. Malamud relates his experiences as a "digital tourist" who circled the globe three times visiting Internet sites in over 50 cities. His reports from the field provide an astonishing glimpse at global politics behind the worldwide engineering effort that has built the Internet. 30 photographs.
