Balancing Act: The Struggle between Orality and Linearity in Computer-Mediated Communication.
Metz, J Michel
New Jersey Journal of Communication, v4 n1 p61-70 Spr 1996
Asks whether computer-mediated communication allows creation of isolated virtual communities for its interlocutors or brings closer the ideal of a global community. Examines the question from the standpoint of R. Cathcart and G. Gumpert's medium theory. Uses data derived from an ethnographic study to illustrate how a new approach is required. (PA)
