be of interest to you and/or your colleagues:)

Have a nice weekend,

     McIver, Jr., William, William F.  Birdsall, and Merrilee
     Rasmussen.  "[40]The Internet and the Right to Communicate"
     [41]First Monday   8(12) (1 December 2003)
     (http://www.firstmonday.org/issues/issue8_12/mciver/). - The
     authors assert that the emergence of the Internet challenges
     traditional conceptions of information rights, because it opens new
     territory that does not fit easily into the parameters that govern
     traditional media outlets. But the debate about information rights
     on the new medium tends to happen in a piecemeal fashion, governed
     by various stakeholders or professions with an interest in the
     process. They see a need to craft a more holistic framework that
     encompasses the entire spectrum of information rights, and the
     right to communicate in particular. To explore this concept, they
     define and differentiate between 'hard' and 'soft' laws. Hard laws
     are statutory and legislative, while soft laws are less binding,
     and exist in the form of charters, declarations and guiding
     principles. They examine how the right to communicate can be
     implemented in realistic terms, arguing that a grass roots movement
     is necessary to push society to create a process for defining
     information rights.

Gurstein, Michael.  "[24]Effective Use: A Community Informatics
     Strategy Beyond the Digital Divide"  [25]First Monday   8(12) (1
     December 2003)
     (http://www.firstmonday.org/issues/issue8_12/gurstein/). - The
     author assesses the huge industries, both intellectual and
     cultural, that have sprung up to comment on the "digital divide".
     He evaluates the various concepts underlying the idea of this
     schism and its effect on the populace, and argues that it is mostly
     a marketing vehicle for technology firms and Internet service
     providers. He presents an alternative approach, which is to focus
     on "effective use." This idea is based in community informatics
     theory, which defines the Internet as a new force in culture and
     society that is not easily measured by conventional means. He
     argues that instead subsidizing technology providers, it would be
     more effective to tie the debate about the digital divide to
     real-world issues like health care delivery, the environment and
     concrete economic injustices.
