Like the whistle-stop tours earlier in this century, politicians are making Web-stop tours. But Web sites are not just for campaigners. Instead, the powers in charge are using the Web for communication. According to Innis (1972), writing itself made possible bureaucracy and empires. What kind of empire interactive global hypermedia will make possible is hard to say at this point. Our special focus for this issue looks at government and political webs at the federal, state, and local and municipal levels.
Remember, we are still in the process of putting together writers for some upcoming special issues on philosophical perspectives of free speech in CMC and technological determinism. Please consider joining our debate about the many issues related to people using computer networks to communicate and interact.
