 The Netscan Project - Mappa.Mundi Magazine - Map of the Month
Usenet started as hack by grad students in 1979 and today has about 27,000 active newsgroups, which have around 675,000 daily messages posted in them.
Each newsgroup has its own particular conversational style and social ambience, and together they comprise perhaps the most diverse portion of social cyberspace, in which hundreds of thousands of people carry on discussions, share technical tips, provide support, and hold heated arguments and debates and vicious flame-wars.
Even though Usenet lacks a single, central authority, its user communities have developed sophisticated social structures and mechanisms and Smith notes, Usenet is a place where cooperation should be hard, but cooperation happens there anyway and with an abundance and profusion that is remarkable.

 Steve North:
The critical thinker knows that his or her new position is still situated, but the geography of the belief, if you will, is expanded.
I first heard the term critical inquiry in grad school 94-98, and it was used to suggests that one could investigate motifs, narratives, novels, poems, lit in general, in a specific manner--critically, if you will....
Critical thinking, as I encounter the phrase in classical and medieval  philology and in modern discussions in literary theory, is a very generic phrase  that can refer to any kind of processes of exploration in literature,  philosophy, linguistics, and others.
