  1. Excellent article. But the implications of what is going on go way beyond the “media.” I think all 20th century institutions are in fundamental transformation, including our own. There used to be the identifiable “inside” and members of organizations and institutions. They ran it, had the resoureces and the control. That’s being changed by the ability of people on the “outside” to mobilize others and resources to do things that institutions did before. I think of “flash institutions” as fluid, flexible, perhaps temporary aggregations of people to do things that it took and organization to do before. Ad hoc institutions if you will or self-organized institutions.
