"A community is bound by place, which always includes complex social and environmental necessities. It is not something you can easily join. You can't subscribe to a community as you subscribe to a discussion group on the net. It must be lived. . . .Unfortunately, communities across the nation are being undermined and destroyed by a variety of forces. . . .The net seduces us and further removes us from our localities--unless we take charge of it with specific, community-based, local agendas" (Doheny-Farina 37).
