The reasons for this confident claim are fairly obvious-- brilliantly clear layout, definitions and terse item bibliographies;- shrewd selection of innovatory terms/buzz words of the Internet era;- 101 elegantly phrased and luminous and informed definitions and- descriptions, each with a succinct bibliography; and- recommended strategies for coping with each of the issues raised.||Publication Type:||Review||Source of Publication:||Australian Folklore, v.19, p. 274-275||Publisher:||Australian Folklore Association||Place of Publication:||University of New England, Australia||ISSN:||0819-0852||Field of Research (FOR):||080703 Human Information Behaviour||HERDC Category Description:||D3 Review of Single Work||Other Links:||http://www.une.edu.au/folklorejournal/||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 129
