Please visit the about the project page for the basic details of the purpose of this blog. More or less though, I’m going to be approaching the topic, ‘the internet is a technology that engenders neoliberal values’ through the form of a blog.

It’s difficult to frame this question by making an outline partially because blogs are by their nature quite reactive to current affairs and the influences of other blogs and the topics approached elsewhere, they are part of a conversation. Nonetheless, here are some topics I’m going to look at:
– The internet, and its place in people’s daily lives.
– What is neoliberalism?
– Freedom of Speech and Censorship online.
– Diversity on the Internet.
– The influence of capitalism in the Internet, with reference especially to online advertising.

Hopefully, by the time the assignment is due, I’ll have a grip on these issues and will be able to come to some kind of conclusion.

Please feel free to comment on any post of this blog with your opinions. In fact, being able to discuss these issues is really the point of using a blog format to approach this assignment rather than writing an essay. Also, if you have any suggestions or useful links, feel free to point those out to me as well!
