The chapters in the book represent various viewpoints mixing theory with empirical cases. Topics addressed range from e-democratic participation to Internet piracy. The main focus of the studies in this book is to highlight the potential capacity of computer-mediated communication to increase people power. The Internet is crucially embedded in the activities of the multi-level political life-world and hardly any dedicated actor (or actors who want to influence public matters) can overlook its importance to contemporary politics. Our purpose is to outline political struggles arising from citizens' own experiences of creating virtual open spaces that they shape in personally distinctive ways.
