Secretive organisations: anarchism after platform capitalism
Keywords:networks, anarchism, Lovink, Rossiter, social media
Geert Lovink and Ned Rossiter's Organization After Social Media interrogate what our relation to the Internet in general, social media platforms, and organised networks in particular should be after botched Twitter revolutions, NSA counter-insurgencies and a rising disillusionment with "platform capitalism." Seeking to find a way for activists to operate in secret networks the authors suggest a future between what they see as the double pitfalls of crises-ridden conventional organisations and offline romanticism.
