The discourse embedded in the rhetoric of 'digital divide or digital commons' appears to be burdened by the fetish and hyperbole of a technological determinism. Why does there appear to be so much resistance toward a dialog, especially in the mainstream media, about the cultural practice and ritual of technologies in society? How can the media and educators better understand how new technologies influence self and social identity?

I am a student at scu.edu and have extensively studied grid tech at the graduate level. Why doesn't the eDiamond group, in order to protect patient privacy, simply remove the name and give them a numerical value for reference to the certain data?

Grid tech's purpose is to ultimately have scientists share their data globally to other scientists. If a scientist is concerned with their IPR, then don't share your data! Grid tech is a data collaboration tool; whether scientists use it or not is up to them.
