Description: In this eloquent exploration of the nature of cyberspace and the increasing virtualization of everyday life, Stephen Doheny-Farina argues that electronic neighborhoods should be less important to us than our geophysical neighborhoods. He Speaks in favor of civic networking, a movement that organizes local information and culture, and shows how new technologies can help reinvigorate our troubled communities.

"The Wired Neighborhood punctures most of the inflated myths about the wondrous Net. Its author also points to one small corner of this datasphere that might build, not erode, community. If you absolutely must remain plugged-in, take his advice about where to aim your mouse". -- Bill McKibben

"Lucid and precise ...invaluable to a nuanced understanding of the technologies now transmogrifying the meaning of community and even reality". -- Utne Reader

"The dilemma Doheny-Farina addresses is a real one that is unlikely to go away, and his book is a useful contribution to the debate.... He writes with an inviting fluency rare in academic Net discourse". -- Charles Shaar Murray, Daily Telegraph

"Doheny-Farina, a shrewd observer of encroaching mediation, makes a number of important points". -- Sven Birkerts, Prevention

"Nowhere online can you find all of these issues summarized or explicated.... I am confident that The Wired Neighborhood will remain an important early analysis of the effects of the Net on our towns and our lives". -- Steve Cisler, Community Networking Currents

"A brave little volume that dares to discuss both sides, fiddling with thought and reason, in an honest quest for insight". -- Burke Campbell, Toronto Globe & Mail

"If Doheny-Farina isn't the first towrite about the Internet with an eye critical to its assumptions and implications, he might well be the most level-headed". -- Paul Maliszewski, Business Journal

"An absorbing work on an important topic". -- Library Journal
