always feel like adding digital cyber virtual etc is misleading and wrong
(assumes the web as a separate sphere, downplays the degree all eg
consumption is digital and all consumption via the screen isn't just
digital and so on). one way around the problem is reframing it as
"consumption and the web" or "digitality and the web" :)
