John Barlow about cyberspace

«. diversity is as essential to healthy community as it is to healthy ecosystems... I believe that the principal reason for the almost universal failure of the intentional communities ... is lack of diversity in their members.
It's rare a commune with people fundamentally out of philosophical agreement with the majority.»

«Like Frankenstein... is the usual problem when we try to build something which can only be grown.»

«. Cyberspace missing elements
a) absence of alternatives
b) sense of genuine adversity, generally shared» [we don't have this at movies also]
