September 11: Participant Webservation of the "War on Terrorism."

September 11: Participant Webservation of the "War on Terrorism."
The paper provides an anthropological analysis of the communication regarding September 11 on the world wide web during the first days of September 11 crisis. Having stated that the role of anthropologists in the evolving September 11 web coverage has been marginal, but not entirely absent and that study of the Internet as an anthropological issue is, for obvious reasons, just beginning, the author concludes saying that without the need to replace the fieldwork with web-based research the anthropologists are beginning to look at the Internet as a quintessential global phenomenon as well as a tool to further analysis and contact after (and now even before) their own field work experience. If the world is not the same after September 11, the way anthropologists study it must also adapt.
