This variety is occasionally to the book's discredit, as it sometimes seems to drift in terms of the connection of the argument at hand to the argument as a whole. But in general, it's pretty significant reading for anyone in the general area of digital media and at least interesting reading for political theory, especially those following Negri and Hardt , and an articulate refusal to anyone who who would use the term "network" in theoretical discussion casually, without a consideration of what the term implies.
