ABSTRACT
Starr Roxanne Hiltz, coauthor of the acclaimed 1978 book The Network Nation, was one of the earliest sociologists to study online and virtual communities. Her groundbreaking work with Murray Turoff forecast the future development of virtual communities and their effects on society, politics, and law as well as helped to set a precedence for online learning and group decision-making research.
