Disorganisation and networks
I was sorting out my books at home last night and was reminded of two Demos publications that I think are really interesting and offer some important and useful insights to the context for this project.
The first of these is Disorganisation: why future organisations must 'loosen up'. It's got some great scenarios about the organisations of the future which touches on the issue of affiliation that we want to explore through the research dimension of this project.
The second of these is a collection of essays called Network Logic: who governs in an interconnected world? It's from 2004, so getting on a little in terms of how fast this field is developing, but still has some very good essays that should provoke new thinking, from people like Howard Rheingold, Manuel Castells, Fritjof Capra and Robert Sampson and Karen Stephenson.
