Network and the Fragmentation of the Public Sphere.
Electronic Journal of Communication/La Revue Electronique de Communication, v6 n2 1996
Focuses on two main communication technology themes: debate on the contemporary cultural turn predicted by new technologies; and implications of that disputed turn for some core concepts of the public sphere. Presents a series of elemental analyses regarding whether the Internet strengthens the political model of representation and lobbyism rather than that of participatory democracy. (RS)
