The Information Highway in Contemporary Magazine Narrative.
Berdayes, Linda Cooper; Berdayes, Vicente
Journal of Communication, v48 n2 p109-24 Sum 1998
Contributes to scholarship on technology and society by examining portrayals of the information highway in a wide range of magazine articles. Finds that a sense of powerlessness pervades these narratives, which portray the world as autonomous economic forces toward which individuals must adjust their actions. Argues that these narratives close off alternate possibilities for social development. (SR)
