A blizzard of new words and phrases, from "bookmark portal" and "cookie poisoning" to "script kiddie" and "viral marketing," have been created by the explosive growth of the Internet.
Now, in Dictionary of the Internet, Darrel Ince defines more than 4,000 terms from the Web, software technology, jargon, e commerce, security, and the technical and organizational infrastructure of the Internet. Ince includes definitions of basic terms, such as "usenet" or "web server" as well as many entries on the colorful jargon of the computer world, such as "Vannevar" or "grey bar land." A free CD-ROM included with the book contains the full dictionary entries in a browsable format with hyperlinks between entries, and links to relevant web sites. The dictionary will be supported by its own web site with updates.
Whether you are a "weasel" (an inexperienced user) or a "webhead," here is an essential reference work, filled with up-to-date information.
