Summary: Getting information off the internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant. (Mitchell Kapor, n.d.).

Health translators working on medical reports will be able to find commonly used abbreviations. Those who have been asked to translate health information material into community languages will be able to gain a good basic overview of related background information and crosscultural issues. Those who teach health interpreters or translators will find this book helpful for structuring their curriculum.

Item Description: MIT Press Ltd, United States, 1994. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. 251 x 175 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Global Networks takes up the host of issues raised by the new networking technology that now links individuals, groups, and organizations in different countries and on different continents. The twenty-one contributions focus on the implementation, application, and impact of computer-mediated communication in a global context. Previously limited to scientific research, global networks now have an impact on social, educational, and business communications. Individuals with a personal computer, a modem, and some simple software can join a new social community that is based on interest, not location. Global Networks, which was written largely with the assistance of the internet, provides an understanding of the issues, opportunities, and pitfalls of this new social connectivity. It looks at how networking technology can support and augment communication and collaboration from such perspectives as policy constraints and opportunities, language differences, cross-cultural communication, and social network design. Contributors: Linda M. Harasim, John Quarterman, Howard Rheingold, Anne Branscomb, Lee Sproull, Sara Kiesler, Marvin Manheim, Hiroshi Ishii, Jan Walls, Michael Kirby, Catherine Murray, Andrew Feenberg, Robin Mason, Margaret Riel, Beryl Bellman, Alex Jeffrey Shapard, Lucio Teles, Howard Frederick, Mitchell Kapor, Daniel Weitzner, Shumpei Kumon, lzurni Aizu, Robert Jacobson.

The twenty-one contributions focus on the implementation, application, and impact of computer-mediated communication in a global context. Previously limited to scientific research, global networks now have an impact on social, educational, and business communications. Individuals with a personal computer, a modem, and some simple software can join a new social community that is based on interest, not location. Global Networks, which was written largely with the assistance of the internet, provides an understanding of the issues, opportunities, and pitfalls of this new social connectivity. It looks at how networking technology can support and augment communication and collaboration from such perspectives as policy constraints and opportunities, language differences, cross-cultural communication, and social network design.
