<nettime> Ars | Report: Democracy 2.0 not quite the upgrade we first thought


This past election saw a lot of talk about "Democracy 2.0" and how the
Web has fundamentally changed the political landscape. A survey from
Pew suggests that the Web's impact on politics isn't completely
benign, as it has increased the political participation gap between
rich and poor, even after controlling for Internet access and age.
