The 25th anniversary of Netizens, the influential book about Usenet and the Internet, has been commemorated in an article in the journal Internet Histories.
Netizens, co-authored by Michael and Ronda Hauben, first appeared in print in 1997. It remains one of the most highly cited and highly regarded books on the development of Usenet and Internet communities.
To mark its anniversary, Camille Paloque-Bergès (Conservatoire national des arts et métiers), Avery Dame-Griff (Gonzaga University), and Tristan Miller (OFAI) present an interview with Netizens co-author Ronda Hauben, along with a six-page introduction on the history and impact of the book. The article, "Remembering Netizens: An interview with Ronda Hauben, co-author of Netizens: On the history and impact of Usenet and the Internet (1997)", is now available (and free to read for a limited time) in the Taylor & Francis journal Internet Histories: Digital Technology, Culture and Society.
