Katia, thanks very much for pointing to the discussion, which is simply
fascinating. I will read it more attentively.
Let me say that meanings are never fixed or 'stuck' and that the
struggle to shift them is always open. So between cosmic space,
night/day, hidden/open, there are plenty of shades and personalities
I think the use of 'dark' is not neutral and it hides a moral geography
of the Net, which might appeal to some of the 'insiders' too. I also
think that the anti-terrorism, anti-immigrants, anti-whatever symbols
(all 'dark' of course) are serious attacks to Internet freedom too.
That's my 2 penny thought.
