The article asks what role different types of physical spaces play for democracy, based on an understanding of democracy as being in need of both a central site of decision making and informal spaces for deliberation and contestation. It then further asks whether the latter functions can be fulfilled by online spaces and also whether the internet might have something like an elective affinity with populism.
