<nettime> re: network


  hi Albert, i've yet to read the original post yet found interest
in what you are referring to, and i wonder...

  * might 'network' and 'market' be juxtaposed, in the way that a
  network may function around individuals and the market may
  function around groups?

  * to me it sounds as if this is an issue related to conceptualization;
  and that 'networks' may function in a larger environment of ideas-
  for instance, with regard to flow, swarms, etc... it would seem that
  'networks' could be considered in terms of an ecological system
  in which various ecosystems (self-contained groups) are linked to
  eachother, with flows between ecosystems in the larger ecology...
  (where, possibly, groups are balancing in a larger dynamic, etc.)

  Brian
