It is important to note that computers and the Internet itself accelerate
techniques of surveillance, and provide powerful tools for cataloging
individuals. This aspect pervades the use of the networked computer and has
sinister overtones. In theorizing the Internet then, these aspects, which
deploy a truly crushing kind of panopticism against the individual, must be
considered carefully.
