From Sixteen years ago, long before most of us ever knew what a "listserve" was, Norman Shapiro issued a report for the Rand Corporation called Toward an Ethics and Etiquette for Electronic Mail. Later, in the mid-1990s, the term netiquette was coined to describe protocols and guidelines for proper behavior when using e-mail, Internet chat rooms, and electronic bulletin boards. Most books about e-mail and the Internet now include a brief discussion of online etiquette. The Bakers, though, move beyond spelling out polite conventions to consider how to improve electronic communication. The Bakers have written nearly a dozen self-help guides on topics ranging from pasta to project management. Now they provide a thorough explanation of how to set up and use e-mail. They also discuss e-mail writing style and "grammar" before moving on to look at chat rooms, mailing lists, and bulletin boards. The Bakers then recommend ways of "putting yourself across online" at work, with friends and family, romantically, with clients and customers, in difficult situations, and on one's Web site.
