What if there is something beyond the network? | Mike Rugnetta | TEDxVienna
What comes after networks? The ‘network’ has been a defining feature of human activity since its conceptualization, and has found its way into nearly all facets of life: there are social and technological networks, biological and electrical networks, media networks and theoretical networks. But there are fundamental frictions to networks, and though it may be tough to understand what a world without them would be like, that is perhaps the best reason to ask anyway.
