Midterm: Week 5

What is “cyberpower”? Define its three forms: individual, social and ideological.

Cyberpower - the effect of online activity on power - can be measured and mapped.
individual - gaining skills and connections for oneself
social - gaining skills and connections for a group
ideological (imaginary) - gaining skills and making connections in order to advance the imaginary; a vision, a movement, an ideological purpose.

 How do CTCs/computing and Internet access create, enable or enhance “cyberpower”?  
"CTCs gain computer-related job and job-hunting skills as well as advances in the areas of employment, learning, increased confidence and sense of community... CTCs are popular with all ages, provide a wide variety of benefits and offer management sustainability challenges to their operators."
