Fighting for your right to privacy online.

Just as mainstream businesses are taking to the net in record numbers, so are business with less conventional business models.

Faith Popcorn got a head start, writing several influential books on the future of marketing in the United States. In retrospect some of her predictions'll see.

The effect of the Net on education in the United States has already been extraordinary. The way schools and universities present information to students has been redefined.
