"I am different with an Internet in my hand; the Internet is different with me using it. I am another subject because I use the Internet; the Internet is another object because it has entered into a relationship with me" (Mer's rendition of Latour's Pandora's Hope p 179)

The demonstration of a new definition for the relationship between humans and non-humans, subjects and objects by Latour goes much deeper than this simple passage has captured.
