互联网时间:十年

十年的时间对于社会科学的研究来说只是一瞬,但在互联网时间里却如万年,恰如所谓“天上一日,地上一年”的说法。四十多年来,有关互联网和相关信息传播技术的发展成为了全世界最充满活力的技术与社会创新领域。在21世纪的第一个十年里,互联网的发展更是翻天覆地,搜索、社交媒体、大数据和互联网商业化等创新都在过去十年内成效卓著,他们业已被互联网用户当成是理所当然的存在。

本文认为,这一跨学科领域必须要拓宽视野,超越现有的社会科学与信息、传播、媒介与文化研究领域研究,与法律、伦理学、工程学、计算机科学等领域结合起来,当然还要与艺术和人文学科结合。随着社会以互联网时间前进,这将成为未来十年内跨学科研究的必然要求。

Abstract
This introductory article provides a critical assessment of the last decade of social research on the Internet and identifies directions for research over the next. Ten years is only a moment in the span of social research, but aeons in Internet time. Has social research across the disciplines been up to the challenges? Over more than 40 years, the unfolding development of the Internet and related information and communication technologies has been one of the most dynamic areas of technological and social innovation worldwide. In the first decade of the twenty-first century, its development was even more dramatic. While innovations in such areas as search, social media, big data, and the commercialization of the Internet became prominent only over the last decade, they are already taken for granted by most Internet users. It is becoming increasingly apparent to us that this interdisciplinary field must broaden even further to better connect with fields beyond the social sciences and information, communication, media and cultural studies to include stronger collaborative ties to law, ethics, and the sciences, engineering, and computer sciences, but also across the arts and humanities. This will be an almost certain requirement for interdisciplinary research over the coming decade with technology and society moving at Internet time.
