What happens in virtual communities is largely up to citizens themselves. Preece’s (2000) model of ‘designing usability and supporting sociability’ with ‘lifelong learning as the central focus’ (as Britain has created in its ‘learning cities’) seems to offer a powerful, although complex, future model. Models of ‘good practice’ for successful, vital virtual communities abound, as do definitions of what constitutes a successful virtual community; however, it took CONROD Australia’s Disability Lifestyles portal to present the first significant virtual community specifically for people with disabilities to emulate.
A sense of control’ The phrase ‘a sense of control’, as used in the title of this book, derives from the central theme that emerged from the open coding analytic process based on grounded theory methodology applied to all the indepth interviews in this investigation. The people interviewed with longterm, severe physical disabilities desired to regain ‘a sense of control’ over their lives. Increasingly, they found that this concept of ‘a sense of control’ was achieved through their use of ICT, and the professionals were as unanimous in their enthusiasm for their clientele using technology as were the disabled people themselves.
Rheingold (1994b: 276) was alert to the fact that virtual communities could help citizens revitalise democracy, or could become an attractively packaged substitute for democratic discourse. : 292). : 279–81, 297). Rheingold sought to balance the dilemma of believing in the democratising potential of virtual communities and the technological criticisms. He believed people must constantly question the reality of their online cultures and remind others of the powerful illusory capabilities of electronic communication.
