One Neighborhood, One Week on the Internet in 2001: The Researchers’ Stories

This page is part of a revealing, detailed ethnographic study of Internet use during the week of Jan. 12-19, 2001, by 24 upper-middle-class families in a small-town neighborhood. These accounts of turn-of-the-century personal use of the Internet were written by the ethnographic researchers who developed the content for this site. Most if the researchers wrote a personal story about their own use of the Internet in addition to a feature story about the family whose Internet use they studied – so you will generally find two different links in each section. The research team included 25 Elon University students and the professor who led the study, Janna Anderson.
