The Problem and its Settings

The term ecotourism was unknown in the English language as recently as the mid-1980’s. Yet, by the beginning of the 21st century, this form of recreational activity, which essentially involves the observation an appreciation of wildlife and other aspects of the natural environment while minimizing the related ecological or sociocultural costs, had emerged as a major component of global tourism and an important focus for academics in the field of tourism studies.

It has always been important to understand what motivates consumers to use the Internet, since network use is a critical precursor to electronic commerce (Eighmey & McCord, 1998; Schonberg, Cofino, Hoch, Podlaseck & Spraragen, 2000). Without Internet use, there is no e-commerce use; this is much the same sort issue that retailers study when trying to determine issues that motivate store visits. Internet use motivations, then, serve and important purpose in the understanding of e-commerce activities. (Stafford, 2003b)

Technically speaking, the Internet has always been a communication medium, so we understand much of its functionality from the standpoint of its telecommunications utility. As we strive to understand motivations for its use, it is important to realize that the Internet is far more than a computer network; as the Internet evolves to become not only a telecommunications network, but also a consumer entertainment source, it gains the potential uses of familiar entertainment and communications media such as telephones, radio and television. The internet remains a network for the distribution of information and telecommunications services, but it also becomes a channel for the delivery of other, richer media. In this sense, it has become a medium of media, or meta-medium (Stafford, Stafford & Shaw, 2002). Thus, where understanding the motivations related to computer use once was sufficient to diagnose Internet user motivations, we must now consider a wider range of potential uses and motivating gratifications arising from use of this complex and rich medium.
