Chapter 12

“The internet is the most important medium since the printing press” (236).

That is why it is so important, Gillmor argues, that the flow of information remain unimpeded. When it does, it facilitates a news dialogue and on a grander scale a conversation that transcends traditional boundaries and cultures─one that will inevitably shrink the world and in doing so bring us “closer” together.

I definitely empathize with your feelings that the Internet "shrinks" our world. It reminded me about a reflection I wrote during break- http://blogs.setonhill.edu/BethanyHutira/2005/11/media_67.html

When you put things into perspective, geographical boundaries are a thing of the past.
