Summary
  • The town of Blacksburg, Virginia, is America's first true "electronic village." With more than half its population connected to the internet, citizens can order their groceries ... view art at a town gallery ... or voice their opinions on a new bond issue ... all online!
  • Authored by the people who made it happen, this book takes a fascinating inside look at the five-year evolution of the Blacksburg Electronic Village (BEV), from its original concept in 1991 to how it is managed today. It addresses the social, economic, technical, and educational impact of living in a "connected town," describes how community members use the network, and explores what has worked and what hasn't along the way. Equally interesting, the book also provides a valuable glimpse at the future and the decisions and responsibilities that life in an "electronic village" thrusts upon civic leaders, educators, parents, and business professionals
