Description

The Internet is playing an increasingly important role in all aspects of social and economic life. This unit of study gives students an understanding of the underlying standards and regulations that impose constraints and open up opportunities for individuals and organisations to make strategic use of the global Internet infrastructure. The Internet provides a case study of how politics manifest not only in public rhetoric and policy, but also in the design of information architectures and interactive systems.
