Summary
  • "The theme of Cyberworlds is the synthesis of worlds in the cyberspaces of networked computers. The aim of the book is to clarify, through a wide variety of case studies, the architecture and design of such cyberworlds and also to address the philosophical questions raised in creating new worlds. Cyberworlds is thus intended for anyone interested in information technology and its social impact. No prior knowledge is required: readers will become familiar with the computational technology required and will come to realize the wider potential of the Internet. Professionals working in information technology as well as undergraduate and graduate students in computer science, social sciences, and business studies will find this a valuable textbook."--Jacket
