Thanks, Barry. I agree, but would add that the mainstream sociology, political science and other social science journals are doing better, although this is recent. They were all late in recognising the significance of communication and technology to the mainstream discipline, and therefore often rediscover themes and issues that have been tackled earlier in journals like iCS. IMHO
