"In contrast to a hierarchically administered organization, in which proposed innovations must be evaluated and deliberated upon -- gestated -- by a central authority over a period of many months, a stigmergic network goes through generational changes in praxis with the speed of replicating yeast. That’s exactly what’s happened with the social movements of the past year and a half -- the arc from Wikileaks’ cable release in Summer 2010 to the latest developments in Occupy Oakland."
