For some, the Internet represents the final realization of the utopian dream of the public sphere – the place where free citizens can meet and, based on the best argument, identify the consensus of society. For others, the Internet represents the exact opposite – the differentiation of the public sphere into particularized worlds of special interest and opinion-based sub-spheres.

-Lars Qvortrup

The nonmediated world has become a country we cannot find our way back to. I don't think it's possible to know what we've lost, but there is a pervasive sense of loss, and a sense of Christmas morning at the same time.

-William Gibson, No Maps for These Territories
