Depends, of course, on what you mean by "culture". If you mean "culture"
largely within the boundaries of a given cultural domain - including
"everyday life" primarily in the Western world - then two things come to
Examining the Internet in Everyday Life - by Wellman, et al - and handily
I'd also recommend Maria Bakardjieva's "The Internet in Everyday Life:
Exploring the Tenets and Contributions of Diverse Approaches," in M.
Consalvo and C. Ess (eds.), _The Blackwell Handbook of Internet Studies_,
59-82. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011). This chapter, as the subtitle suggests,
attends to diverse methodological ways of attempting to understand Internet
impacts and implications precisely as infusing our everyday lives in
multiple ways - but it thereby also sheds very useful light on the
historical development I think you're asking about.
Hope that helps - and g'luck -
