Code in law

CODE in Law

Cyberspace has an architecture; its code — the software and

hardware that defines how cyberspace is — is its architecture. That

architecture embeds certain principles; its sets the terms on which

one uses the space; it defines what’s possible in the space. And

these terms and possibilities affect innovation in the space. Some

architectures invite innovation; others chill it.

The Code in Law, and the Law in Code Lawrence Lessig † http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/works/lessig/pcforum.pdf


Network society

Network Society

In the information age, the critical organisational form is networking. The most critical distinction in this organisational logic is to be or not to be – in the network. Be in the network, and you can share and, over time, increase your chances. Be out of the network, or become switched off, and your chances vanish since everything that counts is organised around a world wide web of interacting networks (Castells 1998).
