This brings us back, ultimately, to where the chapter (and also the final section of the chapter) began. By drawing our attention once again to the media settings (in this case, for talk-in-interaction) that overlay the physical locations of electronic media users, Drew and Chilton are returning to the pivotal idea that place, and experiences of being-in-place, can be pluralized in and by electronically mediated communication.
