Networks/Esther Dyson/Morozov: Dyson's thesis: "Organised political parties are not needed when open networks enable people to organise themselves ad hoc instead of being stuck in a rigid group". (1) MorozovVsDyson: Even Dyson's feeling is, of course, only part of a broader geek's unwell-being with modern politics - and the potential of the "Internet" to repair it. The idea that "the Internet" can free us from political parties or solve profound structural problems in democratic politics dates back to the early 1990s.
