The web's impact continues to grow, but who is being represented and heard in this new medium? It’s been dominated by straight, White American men in the past. Has the ease of publishing on the web allowed it to be a more diverse medium as early users expected? The panel will examine these questions from a variety of standpoints--each defining "diversity" a little differently with something new to contribute to the discussion this year. Moderator: Louise Benjamin, Kansas State University
