Tracy LaQuey Parker
As one of the Internet's early evangelists, Tracy LaQuey Parker wrote two of the first best-selling books about the Internet. The Internet Companion (Addison-Wesley, 1992, foreword by Vice President Al Gore), a layman's guide to the Internet, was the first trade book published, and an international bestseller translated into eight languages, as well as the first commercial book to simultaneously be made available for free online. The User's Directory of Computer Networks (Digital Press, 1988), a comprehensive guide and directory to academic networks around the world, is now a valuable historic record of the NSFNET.
