Die technischen Pioniere versprachen bis vor Kurzem ganz neue Formen der politischen Kommunikation. Nachdem der vormals magische Zusatz "E-" im company an Bedeutung verloren hat, suchen die Verfechter der Online-Partizipation nun nach realistischen Anwendungsfeldern.

Der Autor empfiehlt einen optimalen Kommunikations-Mix mit den "alten" Kommunikationstechniken. Grundlage der Argumentation ist eine umfangreiche empirische Untersuchung eines kommunalen Partizipationsverfahrens. Anhand von Gestaltungsfragen entwickelt er Kriterien für den Einsatz der Internetkommunikation, die auch über kommunale Partizipationsprozesse hinaus richtungweisend sind.
