Small change, net effect

Harry Campbell
Eugene Mozorov has challenged the "internet as road to democracy" truism here , and here and there, and now  Malcolm Gladwell piles on.

  1. I read two of the essays about the net and democracy, and they did not impress me.

    Those articles seem like an often repeated formula: After many, many people have explained that 2 + 2 = 4, one can no longer publish with just another proof of that, but if you can work an angle with a title like "Is 2 + 2 ALWAYS 4? (Is our complete belief in that equation naive)?", you'll get published and talked about.
