Certainly use of the Internet/Usenet/Web by "the average man" in the streets 
play an increasingly important role (talk about preaching to the choir ;) All 
the more important that we remain vigilant and fight any effort to limit its 
use.    (03)

On a somewhat related note, I am anxious to read Howard Rheingold's 
forthcoming tome: "Smart Mobs", http://www.smartmobs.com/book/index.html    (04)

From the summary: "Media cartels and government agencies are seeking to 
reimpose the regime of the broadcast era in which the customers of technology 
will be deprived of the power to create and left only with the power to 
consume."    (05)
