This book is such bollocks. I didn't like Ferguson when studying History at post-grad level at uni, I don't like him now.
One of his main contentions is that hierarchies are just a special form of network. This is only true if you fail to talk about power and subjugation, which he's (just) manage to skirt during the first half of the book.
I also don't like the way he puts forward his own opinions by quoting historical figures of dubious moral character. Silicon Valley types will lap this up.

I guess if someone could give it a test run and tell me if they're struggling with something before I publish, would be great
@wion @remotenemesis well, I think there is a need for a place where people can post a long article without having a blog of their own. In as far as Medium was able to provide that, I liked it. But everything else on top of that was unnecessary. This BoingBoing post lists a few alternatives I like. https://boingboing.net/2017/03/14/minimalist-web-publishing-plat.html
Brutalist blogging platforms!!
Delighted to have found this in an Oxfam bookshop today! It's a follow-up to Morgan's classic 'Images of Organization' which talks about the importance of metaphor use in management and leadership.
Thanks all! Going to explore those two :)
Recommendations for a NextCloud host? It will just be me and one other person using it at first, and unlikely to scale to more than 10 people.
There's a list of providers here: https://nextcloud.com/providers/
(I know and trust Web Architects - who else is good and based in the EU?)
This writeup of my #LibrePlanet2018 keynote on BoingBoing is more eloquent and concise than the talk. Thanks to Cory for the awesome summary, reflections, and signal boost! https://boingboing.net/2018/06/21/digital-enclosure.html
