Quick Reference

The spatial logic of networking which is organized around connections, in contrast to the space of places where the special logic is organized around localities (Castells). In a network society, dynamic flows of people, information, and money, circulate between nodes which form associations that are increasingly independent of specific local contexts. However, the notion of place still has meaning among groups and organizations (see also virtual community; compare social network).
