Ferguson argues that social networks and nothing new. From the printers and preachers who made the Reformation to the Freemasons who led the American Revolution, it was the networked who disrupted the old order of popes and kings. Our era is the second Networked Age, with the personal computer in the role of the printing press. And all networks, past and present, are prone to clustering, contagious and even outages - with the conflicts of the past having unnerving parallels today, in the time of Facebook, Islamic State and Trumpworld.
