Which Internet Books Should You Read? Well if you really want to get a feel for it I recommend you start at the beginning and read up on ARPA-NET and Bell Labs but maybe I would recommend "The Web" by Tim Burners- Less or maybe to be something of Vincent Cerf. There are many other books on the internet that are worth mentioning. Chris Anderson's “The Long Tail” is good.
And how about some internet books from the 90s? "Blown to Bits" was written before 1999 and it's pretty decent, but we know how that bubble turned out, and the IPO rush and venture capital rush of the Silicon Valley is always pretty interesting, and this second wave of the internet tech curve is going to be a lot more sustainable. Google seems like a company everyone is talking about and in the big bookstores you will find several new titles, this year in fact in business innovation and professional tablet computers.
You see, the internet is changing, and it is changing rapidly, and if you want to keep pace, you have to change with it as well. For example, I recommend you find out how it started, how it grew, how the bubble burst and what happened next.
From there you can read what's going on right now, how things are changing as we speak, then go on and read what the biggest tech scholar thinks will happen next – with the futurists who can't stop making predictions even if they are. rarely on target judging by hindsight decades later, after everyone has forgotten what he said.
Why is all this important, well because the internet is part of our daily life, it has infiltrated our families, our businesses, our schools, and now with all the mobile technology it will be with us 24/7 / 365 and most humans aren't going to know what to do without it in the future. You've included, so stop denying it and start learning what it all means. Please consider all of this.
