[Air-L] private/public space & new media

As promised, here are the sources people suggested to me in response to my
query about research on new technology and public & private space.  I've
excluded the ones that were in the bibliography of sources that I'm using in
my current book (and/or used in my last one) that I posted to air-l a few
days ago.  Several of these I had already looked at and/or have, some I was
aware of but hadn't looked at, and some were new to me.  Because I mostly
just copied and pasted these from email messages, this list is in no
particular order and uses no format or style.  Apologies for that.

There are several suggestions that I will be looking at as I write what is
supposed to be my brief (ha) summary chapter, and in further revisions to
the rest of the manuscript.  Thanks so much to everyone!
