Chapter One covers journalistic skills for the new millennium and my favourite subject CAR- computer assisted reporting. Other simply presented chapters include explaining the jargon of the Net, managing bookmarks, email for newsgathering, listservers and newsgroups for news gathering, assessing information quality, and a look at the future.
