The Internet as a Diverse Community: Cultural, Organizational, and Political Issues

By Urs E. Gattiker | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

My development as a researcher and student of technology and, in particular, the Internet, has been aided by many people. This book provides a welcome occasion for me to express my indebtedness and appreciation. Tina Garstad and Hj Shawyer worked diligently and effectively as editorial assistants during the various stages of this book. They took on a difficult task of forcing me to make my ideas and thoughts clear.

Several of my current and former colleagues at the University of Lethbridge helped to bring the book to completion. I cannot mention all of them, but Shamsul Alam, Lynne Mather, Michelle McCann, Bryan Pratt, Mike Studd, Sajjad Zahir and the former dean, George Lermer, were particularly instrumental in providing guidance for portions of this book on the basis of their own disciplines. A number of their valuable suggestions have been incorporated; they acted as unpaid research assistants and as participants in an informal seminar, as have colleagues from other faculties. All endured many hours of discourse, reacting graciously to my unorthodox questions and unusual assertions. I appreciate all that they have contributed.

A special thanks goes to the staff at the Aarhus School of Business (Denmark), Department of Organisation and Management for providing administrative support, particularly Lis Post. Rita Madsen did all the fine tuning with the indices and with making sure I was not getting sloppy. Many thanks also to Stella Kedoin, Technology Studies managing editor for her patience; her extrasensory perception and mind-reading ability were helpful in keeping this project on track. Finally, my new colleagues at Aalborg University were very understanding in supporting my efforts while being patient enough in making me aware of all the cultural and regulatory realities influencing the use of technology not only in Denmark, but in the European Union in general. Many thanks also to Lis Bach who helped in the final stages of this book.
