Questions: The Wealth of Networks

 

1. Benkler defines culture as “the product of a dynamic process of engagement among those who make up a culture” (pp. 282). He also states that internet makes possible the peer production of information, knowledge, and culture. How can Internet produce another culture by people from different cultures? 

 

2. Considering the Benkler’s concept of culture above. What cultures or sub-cultures have become more transparent and grown as a result of the Internet, and what cultures have been unaffected or shrunk?

 

3. Why would authoritarian governments support the development of networks when they know that it is extremely hard to control them? Does everyone want to help to build a healthier global society?
