1Rogers, E.M. ; Collins-Jarvis, L. ; Schmitz, J.: ¬The PEN Project in Santa Monica : interaction communication, equality, and political action.
In: Journal of the American Society for Information Science. 45(1994) no.6, S.401-410.
Abstract: An electronic communication system, especially if it is designed to aaccomodate open access via public terminals can allow information-disadvantaged groups to exchange relevant information and engage in political action. The Public Electronic Network (PEN), a free computer-based massaging system available to Santa Monica, CA residents, allowed homeless and homed individuals to meet around the issue of homelessness. These meeting eventually led to collaborative political action to enable homeless individuals to more effectively seek employment. PEN also alloed female residents to engage in political discussion, and to form a female users' group to support female participation in the electronic networking system, and in the political community as a whole
