This paper discusses the Internet as the dominant social text of our time. It argues that in contrast to the medium of television, which at its height was a unifying and homogenizing technology, the impact of the Internet and the computer upon human culture is as a force of democratic fragmentation.
From the Paper:" The Internet and networked computer technologies have had a seismic effect on global culture within the span of just over a decade. While computers have long been an element of human society, they have largely been confined to a support role as mainframe systems that "crunch" numbers or collect data for institutions, companies and government. With the Internet, and the linked networks of servers and personal computers spanning the globe, computers have come into the foreground as primary determinants of human cultural and social organization. This essay will discuss the Internet as the dominant social text of our time."
