The Role of Virtual Communities in Modern Society

Created by Isomi Miake-Lye
This podcast explores the development of the online community and its role in society, looking at arguments from Geert Lovink and Sherry Turkle. It is suggested that both activism and a communal spirit are possible in the virtual community, and references to Robert Putnam's Better Together help identify what makes a community effective.
