Following up with Jeremy's comment, I'd like to add that the proposed 
topic is one which attracts a lot of attention in other societies, such 
as the Association of Internet Researchers. It would thus be advisable 
to think of getting organized not only within ASIS&T but in conjunction 
with other bodies.
