In its first month on the Internet's virtual newsstand, HotWired--the ambitious electronic offspring of the ink-and-paper magazine, Wired--is taking something of a beating in the on-line reviews.

Howard Rheingold, whose book "The Virtual Community" helped spawn a string of unconvincing online community ventures, is launching a "social Web" service today that he hopes will succeed where others have fallen short. Bankrolled by Japan's aggressive Softbank Corp. and private investors, Electric Minds is a sort of meta-community, featuring lists and links to other gathering places throughout the Internet, columns about virtual cultures and reports from local cybergroups around the world.

If your memory of the last decade is a pixelated blur of dot-com schemes spawning countless millionaires, then revisiting the rise of the digital era through its most celebrated publication should bring events sharply back into perspective. In "Wired: A Romance," Gary Wolf offers a studied rather than sensational journey through the detritus of the '90s techno explosion, the magazine's pivotal role in it and its maverick cast of characters.
