(1) Jacques Derrida, “Mal d’Archive” [Der95], pp 17-18: “Mais je privilégie aissi l’indice du E mail pour une raison plus important et plus évidente: parce que le courrier électronique est aujourd’hui, plus encore que le Fax, en passe de transformer tout l’espace public et privé de l’humanité, et d’abord la limite entre le privé, le secret (privé ou public) et le public ou le phénoménal. Ce n’est pas seulement une technique, au sens courant et limité du terme: à un rhythme inédit, de façon quasi instantanée, cette possibilité instrumentale de production, d’impression, de conservation et de destruction de l’archive ne peut pas ne pas s’accompagner de transformations juridiques et donc politiques. Celles-ci affectent, rien de moins, le droit de propriété, le droit de publier et de reproduire.”
