What examples did you find in this chapter of people using the internet in their attempts to bring about change? How might they have answered Allen’s questions?
What do these questions suggest about the potential opportunities and difficulties in using the internet to make positive change? Do you think these questions would be helpful even if one’s plan of action does not involve the internet?
Think about a positive change that you would like to see in your community, and then use these questions to begin to sketch out a plan to make that change happen.
