Moving Images Distribution handles a video that may or may not be
specific
enough for you. It's called HI-TECH CULTURE, is 52 minutes long, and
looks
at the impact of changing technology on society. Included in this is
one
10-minute segment called "Sex, Lives, and Cyberspace" that features
Dr.
Avodah Offit, author of Virtual Love, two people talking about
on-line
relationships (one that developed, one that didn't), and commentary
on
cyber chat lines.

The video also features discussion on other topics, such as: the
billion
dollar games industry, the impact of changing technology on
education, the
role of new technology in fighting crime (public kiosks for
Crimestoppers
tips), and the
effect of technology on Art (virtual reality projects).

If you are interested in a more detailed description, please let us
know.

Sincerely,
Sylvia Jonescu Lisitza
