 The Status of the Information Society, by Michel Bauwens

American Progress and Freedom Foundation Activity

The PFF primary discussion paper, the "Magna Carta of the Knowledge Age," written by George Gilder, Alvin Toffler, amongst others, seemed to consider cyberspace as a collection of knowledge bases and not as a collection of people communicating. This was seen as signifying a business bias. By now, of course, reports that the PFF may have been a conduit for donations to the Gingrich political machine, may have further weakened the foundation's potential role. ^
