2001 UCLA Internet Report
Research Wire -- John Freeman Jr.
It's probably not
news that will bring much cheer to the few remaining survivors of a generation
of dot coms that has been publicly castigated and humiliated, but it's
Internet use continues to grow steadily, and will continue to do so for
the forseeable future, at the expense of the Networks and Cable providers,
according to a recent study.
The 2001 UCLA Internet Report : Surveying
the Digital Future by the UCLA Internet Project
at the Center for Communication Policy, provides a number of findings
likely to bring a smile to the lips of futurists who've suffered through
24 months of relentlessly distressing news on the technology front.
The big news: people still like the Net, despite all the bad press.
On a scale of 1
to 5, with 5 being best, those surveyed gave the Net a four in terms of
overall satisfaction. Predictably, most people had reservations
about their privacy and the safety and reliability of online transactions.
Also noteworthy: Among those surveyed, 43.4 percent said that a repeal
of the ban on Internet Sales taxes would make them significantly less
likely to buy online.
