[new] parasites (Avg. Score: none / Raters: 0) (#2)

(User Info)

Let me answer with a quotation of Morten Soby that I like very much: "Not everyone will feel at home in the cybersphere's interactive net, but we do not really have a choice."
There are indeed few hospitable relationships within the Internet which similes the original idea of a balanced hospitality without parasitical behaviour, but there are some successful approaches of net specific hospitality that aim to make the special conditions of the internet a subject of discussion and use them in an adequate style like Irina Aristarkhova's virtual chora, where the guests had free ftp-access and the possibility to "establish" on Aristarkhova's web site for a while.
But looking on the whole I also have the opinion that the possibilities of the Internet, for example undermining locality and gender-role-expectations, are not exhausted or fulfilled, but there are even new forms of a net-specific culture established that may lack equal possibilities for discourse and democratic contribution.
