Sebastian Stier führt bislang isolierte Literaturen der politik- und kommunikationswissenschaftlichen Internetforschung zusammen und untersucht empirisch, inwiefern Autokratien in ihrer Netzpolitik und politischen Online-Kommunikation von Demokratien abweichen. Der Autor zeigt in einem makro-quantitativen Ländervergleich, dass es autokratischen Herrschern gelingt, das net in ökonomische Performanzstrategien zu integrieren, während die zivilgesellschaftliche Ermächtigung, auch aufgrund der Internetzensur, schwächer ausfällt als es optimistische Stimmen vermuten.

Sample text

Joyriders are particularly attracted to wellknown sites and uncommon computers. Vandals Vandals are out to do damage, either because they get their kicks from destroying things, or because they don't like you. When one gets to you, you'll know it. Vandals are a big problem if you're somebody that the Internet underground might think of as The Enemy (for example, the phone company or the government) or if you tend to annoy people who have computers and time (for example, you're a university with failing students, or a computer company with annoyed customers, or you have an aggressively commercial presence on the Internet).

A flood of email messages so overwhelmed their network service that other messages couldn't get through; eventually, their Internet connection was shut down entirely. Their phone service also fell victim to the intruders, who reprogrammed the service so that callers were routed to an out-of state number where they heard an obscene recording. Although some cases of electronic sabotage involve the actual destruction or shutting down of equipment or data, more often they follow the pattern of flooding seen in the Quittner-Slatalla case or in the case of the Internet worm.

There are two problems with this argument. First, it's impossible for an intruder to determine successfully what resources are excess and use only those. It may look as if your system has oceans of empty disk space and hours of unused computing time; in fact, though, you might be just about to start computing animation sequences that are going to use every bit and every microsecond. An intruder can't give back your resources when you want them. , but that doesn't mean I'm willing to lend it to you without being asked.
