Abstract:Feudal lords, capitalist bourgeoisie then knowledge netocrats. Three historical eras, three ways to structure the society. In netocraty, the last paradigm, netocrats architect their power on contacts and knowledge sharing. No more fields and castles or industries and funds. Only matter relevant informations, spread cautiously with the righ people.
As barbars, netocrats are coming with new rules, objectives, ambitions. Conservative positions are swept without. In that society secret management is more important than money. Real and virtual networks are invisible kingdoms where power links are redefined.
Curators, nexialists and eternalists are the three nodes typologies authors introduce to describe the netocrats network.
