Themes of Cybercultures and CyberspaceEdit
This source talks about a lot of the things that we have discussed in class. Just on the main page of the website, for example, I found a link to an article that talks about Hawaii wanting to keep track of all the websites that you visit. This applies directly to a discussion and reading we had earlier that talked about companies using cookies to track your internet usage to find out more about you. Also, this website in general covers many of the topics we have talked about in class such as social networking websites and advances in technology.
