More and more of our social, political and religious activities are modelling themselves after the World Wide Web. A committed anarchist, Vaidhyanathan shows how the key information structure of our time is the 'peer-to-peer network'. These networks have always existed… - gossip is one example, as is word-of-mouth advertising - but with the rise of electronic communication, they are suddenly coming into their own. And they are drawing the outlines of a battle for information that will determine much of the culture and politics of our century. Everything from culture to terrorism and extremist politics to religion will be affected. 2005.
