“We have a theory that there are processes for building norms on the internet which look different than those which take place in traditional society and that they are moving in a different direction than where the majority of society and legislation are headed,”
A lot will depend on the methodology on this one. Could be quite controversial. Could also be very interesting and useful if done well. What do you think they will find? Is there a different morality online than in 'traditional society'? Will people develop a different morality when raised with the Internet? Did television also make such a change and did we fail to notice?
Love that 'traditional society'...is that the new buzz word for the offline world? I need to log into traditional society for a bit so my RL av can get some sleep. :)
