See, most recently, Thomas L. Friedman, The World is Flat: The Globalized World in the 21ST Century (2006) and Joseph E. Stiglitz, winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Economics, who each discuss how globalization is changing the world. In 2006, both scholars, who were interviewed by the New York Times, explained their theory of a ‘flat globalized world’ in further detail.

Rhizomatic networks have the power to regenerate as much as they are decentralized in terms of this power. “A rhizome may be broken, shattered at a given spot, but it will start up again on one of its old lines, or on new lines:” Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, Introduction: Rhizome, A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia 9 (2002).
Id., 21-23: “A plateau is always in the middle, not at the beginning or end. A rhizome is made of plateaus…concepts are lines, which is to say, number systems attached to a particular dimension of the multiplicities (strata, molecular chains, lines of flight or rupture, circles of convergence, etc.)…The outside has no image, no signification, no subjectivity.”

A polyphony (meaning ‘many voices‘) that creates a Moebius form of a network. Network as process, flow, and dynamic as formulated by Russian philosopher, literary critic and semiotician, Mikhail Bakhtin.
