Noam Chomsky really debunks these off-the-shelf techno-utopias when he points out that the majority of people in this world don't even have access to a telephone, much less personal computers and the Internet.

I find listservs like lbo-talk useful for refining theory and trading information (whether muckraking exposes, scholarly studies, or press releases for upcoming events and demos), but until a viable, genuine, mass-based movement emerges, I think specific programs for liberation are kind of silly, especially ones that concentrate on technology as the primary liberating force.
