Exploring the Electronic City

Exploring the Electronic City

Imagine yourself in a small room with no windows.

The walls have been painted white—so has the furniture. There are bookshelves lining the walls. They are filled with books, all of which may be interesting. Their spines, however, have all been painted white.

You can make out hallways, leading to other rooms. But each of those looks like this one. You can hear the clattering of footsteps and the murmuring of voices. In fact, it sounds as if the room, like all the rooms around it, is stuffed with people. Still, you cannot see anyone around you.

The Internet is a lot like this room: cold and often impersonal.

This week, the Scene introduces you to some of the people behind the voices in the white room. From a top politician to a pair of multimedia doctors, The Four Most Wired People in Nashville will tell you their stories.

If you’re new to the Internet craze, we’ll show you how you can Get Connected and only lighten your wallet a tiny bit.

We’ll take a trip down those cold, white hallways to discover what’s online in Music City with the Nashville NetGuide, and we’ll find out just how much of Nashville there really is out there on the ’Net.

And by the time we’re done, we’ll be painting the room purple and moving in the armchairs and the cow-print couch.

No one said we couldn’t redecorate.
