What do OTOH and ASCII stand for? Should "online" be hyphenated? What exactly is Internet "spam, " anyway? Whether you communicate on the Net or just write about it, you can't escape the quandaries of our new techno-language. A book as revolutionary as the industry it covers, "Wired Style" is a hip, wonderfully practical guide for navigating the informal waters of digital prose. Now totally updated and in a new format, "Wired Style" offers breakthrough essays showing how to "Transcend the Technical, " "Capture the Colloquial, " and "Go Global, " while its comprehensive listings cover geeks' lingo, decode acronyms, and answer all those frequently asked questions. Scoffing at stodgy grammarians, Constance Hale and Jessie Scanlon provide a saucy, entertaining read. Information Age Noah Websters, they have created an indispensable reference guide for our new linguistic frontier.
"I once had a friend call up and tell me, 'Whosis wants to talk to you about whatsis.' He needed this book."
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-TimesReview:
"...the strength of Wired Style is that it will provoke many new arguments about the way our language is evolving, whether in speech or on screen."
