Today’s Quote – 2007.02.21

“New information technologies—including email, the web, and computerized blast-faxes and phone calls—have fundamentally changed the landscape of political competition in modern democracies. They’ve done so in three ways: by dramatically boosting the access of individuals and special interests to politically potent information, by making it easier for such people to coordinate their activities and exert political power, and by greatly increasing the pace of events within our political systems.” —Thomas Homer-Dixon, director of the Peace and Conflict Studies Program at the University of Toronto
