<nettime> Culture, Class, and Cyberspace


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, most of the links lead to original material, not the
summarized articles you may have read in a newspaper or magazine dealing
with similar subjects.
