At the second biennial conference on Cultural Attitudes towards Technology and Communication papers were presented on the strengths and limits of CMC technologies. The first two papers bring to the foreground how cultural beliefs and patterns are beyond the capacity of CMC technologies to mediate. The second section focuses on how gender differences work in CMC environments to the disadvantage of women. Finally issues of power are dealt with, specifically that CMC technologies will inevitably democratize users, organizations and countries.
