Welcome to Jim Karpen .Com. This site contains
selected Internet columns written monthly for the
Iowa Source magazine and weekly for 10 newspapers
in eastern Iowa. I've been writing regularly about
the Internet since 1994.
I'd like to thank my many faithful readers who
have encouraged me to put my columns online. And
I'd like to thank all of you who have expressed
appreciation for my writing.
So who's Jim Karpen? Ph.D., college professor,
Internet devotee. I teach writing at Maharishi
University of Management in Fairfield,
I've been interested in the revolutionary
consequences of computer technology ever since
writing my Ph.D. dissertation in 1984 at Bowling
Green State University. It was a study of the
"digitzed word" and anticipated some of the changes
that have taken place with the Internet.
