Sanford Kwinter, "Virtual City, or The Wiring and the Waning of the World" (Assemblage 29 : 89-101). (References to this article are abbreviated VC, followed by the page number.)

There is more to Kwinter's article than the points I have excerpted here. There is a discussion of the nature of modernization along the lines of Weber and the Frankfurt School, as well as an argument about the nature and effect of information on experience.
