Introduction In the late 1980s and early 1990s, few people had heard of, or knew the meanings of words like 'Internet' or 'Cyberspace', yet by 1997, Cairncross (1997) was proclaiming how the communications revolution, exemplified by the Internet, meant the "death of distance". Between 1997 and now, developments in Information Technologies (ITs) like the Internet have accelerated and further transformed information exchanges (See Guri-Rosenblit, 2005), and by 2007, Fuchs (2007) could legitimately begin his Internet and Society: Social Theory in the Information Age with the observation that the "Internet is ubiquitous in everyday life."
