conventional tourism is unclear. Certainly those coming to protest the World Economic Forum
had a different impact from those coming as delegates to the Forum.
Another important question concerns who can create alternative urban images for the
Internet. The disparities in computer skills and access to Internet technology limit the diversity
of urban representations. If these disparities decline, the possibility that cities will be represented
in even more diverse and surprising ways will emerge. There will be more opportunities to
counter representations of cities that deny their complexity. One question will then be: What
new types of tourism might develop from these new representations? Could new interurban
alliances develop which attract tourists to participate in local struggles for low income housing or
new school facilities? At this early stage in the development of the Internet, we can only say, the
possibility is there.
