Bedrooms, Barrooms & Board rooms on the Internet Also co-authored by Donna Riley. We argue the dominance of the media types framework in the debate over electronic forums and services has in some cases created threats both to speech and to minimal responsible controls. Neither protected forums nor contemplative, comforting spaces can exist under the media types rubric. A more appropriate analog than different media is different spaces.
