Although I strongly believe in the power of individual initiative and the importance of personal responsibility, I see all of us as social creatures.
In Civilizing Cyberspace Steven Miller presents a sweeping view of the many important issues facing society as a result of cybertechnology. But while he writes about technological and philosophical concerns, his writing is free of jargon, making his presentation easily comprehensible to those new to cyberspace. Although I strongly believe in the power of individual initiative and the importance of personal responsibility, I see all of us as social creatures. We can learn much about ourselves and our condition through isolated self-reflection, but we reach our human potential only through interaction with others.

Civilizing Cyberspace is the best single volume introduction to the policy issues surrounding the Internet I have seen
Civilizing Cyberspace is the best single volume introduction to the policy issues surrounding the Internet I have seen. Miller says he wrote it for information technology professionals and non-technical people "piqued by all the talk about the Information Superhighway", but I think the most important audience for his work consists of the politicians and lobbyists actually involved in formulating policy. He starts by looking at how past technologies-from the railroads to cable TV-have transformed daily life and then examines computer technology in that light.
Civilizing Cyberspace : Policy, Power, and the Information Superhighway. Steven Miller writes a sort of "choose your own adventure" book about information technology complete with alternative endings based on how well society deals with the issues and decisions encountered along the information superhighway. If you choose to use the National Information Infrastructure (NII) to benefit the market economy, turn to page19, if you choose to use the NII to promote a true democracy, turn to page 377, etc. Miller is, of course, not neutral in his opinion of what the focus of NII development ought to be.
