Tangled Webs: E-zine Archive


Welcome
Welcome to the Tangled Webs e-zine. I began writing Tangled Webs in 1996 in response to the media feeding frenzy about all things Internet. It seems that many journalists base their stories on corporate press releases, and as a result, many stories raise unnecessary fears or overlook the most important aspects of events they cover.

Tangled Webs speaks against the hype surrounding technology. It is sometimes cynical, often critical, and hopefully provides a different perspective and some thought-provoking information about how technology is really affecting our world. Tangled Webs is published monthlyish, and is carried by The Japan Times and Computing Japan.
