Imagination and the Internet
In this section you will find various installments for my monthly column on Imagination and the Internet written for ICN - a new Canadian Internet news source.

Imagination and the Net II
Here I give a brief outline of the repression of the imagination since the Enlightenment and, from there, I move into a deeper discussion as to why the Internet is like imagination.
