A good question. I don't know about "canonical," but here are several older
collections I'd add to the list. I'd be interested in seeing your compiled
list when it's done.
James Brook & Ian Boal (eds.), Resisting the Virtual Life: The Culture and
Politics of Information (City Lights Press, 1995).

Cynthia Haynes & Jan Rune Holmevik (eds.), High Wired: On the Design, Use,
and Theory of Educational MOOs (U of Michigan P, 1998).

Patricia Sullivan & Jennie Dautermann (eds.), Electronic Literacies in the
Workplace (NCTE and Computers and Composition, 1996).

Stuart C. Selber (ed.), Computers and Technical Communication (Ablex/ATTW
Studies in Technical Communication, 1997).

Jennifer Terry & Melodie Calvert (eds.), Processed Lives: Gender and
Technology in Everyday Life (Routledge, 1997). --> not about the Internet,
but an important work on technology and gender

* Any of several co-edited collection edited by Gail Hawisher & Cynthia
Selfe, including Global Literacies and the World Wide Web (Routledge, 1999)
and Passions, Pedagogies, and 21st-Century Technologies (Utah State
University Press, 1999).
