This nonfiction round-up spotlights an analysis of the thing that brings us all together yet tears us apart: the internet.
LURKING: How a Person Became a User by Joanne McNeil
In a shockingly short amount of time, the internet has bound people around the world together and torn us apart and changed not just the way we communicate but who we are and who we can be. With every click and swipe, this debut examines the primary concerns of people online–searching, safety, privacy, identity, community, anonymity, and visibility–to establish a singular vision of who we are now, tells the stories of how we became us, and helps us start to figure out what we do now.
“McNeil presents an original take on a fascinating and important subject and makes it clear that there is much to consider and explore and an endless array of approaches with which to do so.”–Booklist
