Notes: This is a unique book exploring how people and organizations in all 50 United States (plus the capitol) are using the Internet as the first stepping stone toward the Clinton administration's "information superhighway". Written as an oral narrative from the mouths of the people making these projects work, the book covers uses of the Internet in libraries, K-12 education, agriculture, economic development, government, health care and higher education. Although brief, 51 Reasons gives novel ideas for the use of the Internet and provides contact information for each of the individuals/projects mentioned.
