<nettime> [9/26/1998]: Culture, Class, and Cyberspace

[The date in the subject indicates the last time this list was updated]


I don't agree with all the conclusions, but listed below are some very
interesting and important resources, dealing with the intersection of
ethnicity, culture, class, poverty, computers, and cyberspace. 

Even if you're busy, please be sure to at least browse them. 

If you have a web page, and you agree that these links are important,
please do me a favor and add them to a section on your site. Thank you. 

By the way, many of the links lead to original material, not the
summarized articles with similar titles that you may have read 
in a newspaper or magazine.
