1997 Internet Demographics Data Mining

This presentation is useful for anyone interested in the history of the Internet and specifically how it was utilized in the fall of 1997. Data mining techniques were used to investigate what exactly people did on the Internet in 1997, since at that time there was not much infrastructure for e-commerce, video games, etc. The data that was processed to gain this knowledge was collected from October 10, 1997 to November 16, 1997 in the form of an online survey by Georgia Tech's Graphics and Visualization Unit. This data is important for historical purposes because it gives a look into a specific moment of time in the relatively short life of the Internet. Someone studying Internet use in the 90's will find the knowledge gained from the data mining to be a great help to their research.
