The Court Reporter’s Guide to Cyberspace

You are here: HomeBooksOther → Cyberspace

Court Reporters Guide to CyberspaceThe Court Reporter’s Guide to Cyberspace was published in May of 1996. At the time, it was the definitive guide to the Internet, CompuServe, and the rest of the dark and mysterious world on the other end of the modem.

Written exclusively for people in the court reporting profession, this book explores cyberspace from a court reporter’s unique point of view. One of the authors has almost 30 years of experience as a court reporter, and the other one has been developing products for court reporters for over 10 years.

Parts of The Court Reporter’s Guide to Cyberspace are still useful and accurate, but today it is more useful as a history of how the court reporting profession carved out a homestead online. It is outdated as a guide to the Internet or CompuServe, but it’s a great piece of nostalgia for early adopters in the court reporting profession. Although chapters on things like bulletin board systems are no longer relevant, much of the history and marketing advice remains accurate.
