Where I can I read about the internet seen from a postmodern / post-structualist perspective?

It's always seemed to me that there was a natural link between the internet as a whole and postmodern theory: death of the author/central authority; flexibility of meaning; différance and so on. But I haven't read anyone who's written about the internet from this perspective. Know of any good books, articles or talks that tackle this?
I realise this is potentially fairly broad, and that both these theories are somewhat out of fashion, so if you do think of something which kind of applies even if it means rephrasing what I'm looking for, then shoot!
