Abstract

This paper was delivered in different form to the conference 'The Politics of Code: Shaping the Future of the Next Internet Programme' in the Comparative Media Law and Policy/Oxford Internet Institute seminar series, University of Oxford (Feb 2003), and the UK-Netherlands Partnership Programme in Science sponsored workshop 'The Internet and International Affairs', International Institute of Infonomics, University of Maastricht, Holland (June 2003). In American Behavioral Scientist (49(4), (2005) MacDougall states:

Salter's analysis is valuable because it raises the possibility that the way the medium is used and the way it is talked about might have more to say about its current and future structure than the way it is formally designed and implemented. This is a key observation that gains additional credence in the present study (578).

It has also been cited in a number of journals, books and reports, Dahlberg, L. (2007) in International Journal of Media and Cultural Politics 3(1) pp. 47-64, and in The Information Society (22(5), 2006), where Petri points to the paper as an exemplary communitarian argument (202).
