Networks are everywhere. Connectionists think of our brains as neural networks. Some people think networks are changing society. Some people would like to use networks to change society. Others think of the earth as a self-organising network.

Not all networks - social, neural, or whatever - are on the internet.

There's no true network but the Internets and SMTP is its messenger.

I especially enjoyed the First Monday articles and the Capra interviews. Thanks.
