3-0 out of 5 stars definitely outdated
It's not that a bad book, just, outdated, unless you are interested in early, pre-Amazon Internet.

5-0 out of 5 stars An old classic. Required reading for the net.
Although some of the command line invocations are from the primordial past of the 'net, this book still is chock full of good philosophy on how folks ought to behave on line.

Keep in mind this book was written "back in the day" when it wasn't called "the internet."In fact the internet as we know it today really didn't exist yet.There was the ARPA/DARPA network which was strictly for colleges and the defense industry to exchange data. The technology back then consisted of 9600 baud (or slower) modems and technologies like UUCP were in use.

From UUCP came some of the early news groups. Then called USENET, this was a way of allowing folks to post articles under a hierarchy of "groups" that were organized as to subject matter.

From those beginnings we now have web sites, email lists, IRC, AOL Chat, blogs, wikis and all sorts of things on the 'net.

And still and probably nowadays more importantly is the need for a code of honor or code of ethics to guide how people interact using these mediums. Hence the term "netiquette" and "netizen."

To be a good netizen you practiced good netiquette in all your dealings on the 'net.

This book is all about those concepts and what is considered good and what is considered bad.There is a recognition of the effects of the anonyminity of posting using "handles" instead of real names and the like. Because of that anonymity some folks feel that they can say things in a manner on the 'net that they would dare say in person in public.This book addresses that and more.

In spite of its datedness in terms of the technology it speaks to it still deserves a place on every netizens bookshelf.

1-0 out of 5 stars Hopelessly out-of-date
If you're using Amazon, you don't want this book.It's pre-Web and explores such topics as FTP etiquette and sending email from a VMS command line.Unfortunately, the rating system does not allow zero stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great intro to net surfing!
"Zen and the art of the Internet" is the first book I have seen from Brendon Keyhoe's pen, and it's a winner!Those of us who watched the computer revolution pass us by, will find lots of basic, introductory info on the internet, it's history and how to connect.He gives thoughtful, careful, complete descriptions of the various internet components, such as TCP/IP, telnet, ftp, and gopher.Looking for a quick, understandable method of composing your own web page?The appendix, alone, covers web authoring concepts in just a dozen pages or so;I've seen books (such as "HTML for Dummies") waste literally hundreds of pages with useless, technical details the average user could care less about.Need an easy to understand, yet thorough intro to net surfing?Get "Zen and the Art of the Internet"! ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
Brendan Kehoe, author of the original online help file and the cult classic Zen and the Art of the Internet, applies his wildly popular introduction to the Internet formula (concise and to the point) to a new book designed to help parents and teachers make full use of the Internet for children.Amazon.com Review
Figuring out how to use the Internet as an educational tool inkindergarten through 12th grade can be a tricky matter. BrendanP.

Includes a demo copy of Cyber Patrol software onCD-ROM. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Some Duplicated Info, Some Fresh
I just read this book after reading Zen and the Rat of the internet.There appears to be some information duplicated in both books.Also there are some far out errors, the one I noticed first was the quote by "Irish Murdoch"!I think the book could have used an editorial pass.

The really fresh and worthwhile stuff was the case studies and how to make it work in the real world.It was almost like one author did "internet" stuff and one did children stuff, and the children stuff was much more polished.I wonder if maybe the co-author Victoria Mixon did the kids stuff since it wasn't also in the Zen book. I can't find any other books by her though, I wish she would write some.

This is a good book for getting teachers (and kids!) on the internet though!

3-0 out of 5 stars Great book for first time internet user
Kehoe and Mixon provide a great resource for the parent or educator that has interest, but no exposure to the internet.This is an easy read that provides useful information for the concerned parent.Support is alsooffered for the technologicaly reluctant educator.This is a great"how to" for the educator that is interested in bringing tech.into the class, but is not sure where to begin.The text and informationpresented is best suited for someone with little to no backgroundexperience with the internet. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars A little ancient history
A lot has changed on the Internet in decade or so since this book was published.It describesthe domain name system, SMTP email, Usenet, Telnet and FTP.No mention of the World Wide Web, which was just getting off the ground when this book was published.The book seems quaint now, though much of the information still applies.Read about "the" Internet worm, the Cuckoo's egg and the online Coke machine! ...
