Ah, but the reason why I asked specifically about Lebbeus Woods
is that he is one of the better known architects who actually seems
to have an understanding of what communication technology means,
and to include computer networks as a tool for individual freedom.
His Zagreb-Free-Zone project describes freespaces and free-zones
wherein the inhabitants have access to global communications network
and broadcasting equipment.

As far as I know, he has not yet involved himself specifically in
the cyberspace discussion, but I would think it is a natural
progression of some of his schemes.
