Information Technology and Physicality in Community, Place, and Presence.
Streibel, Michael J.
Theory into Practice, v37 n1 p31-37 Win 1998
Raises several questions about information technology. After arguing for the importance of physical place and presence in how people construct meaning, form personal biographies and public histories, and develop living communities, the article contrasts this with the consequences of the abstractions of place and presence in virtual, on-line communities.
