 and that the medium is now entering a more mature phase (less gold-digging,=

evelopments or on what social groups have been most influential (scientists,=
 entrepeneurs, grass roots  c.f. Castells) or some combination of both =
types of criteria (or other). Thus, I am not sure there is a conflict - or a=
