With the growth and increasing pervasiveness of the internet it is becoming more likely that people are being introduced to anarchism, and all things related to anarchy, on the internet. It has been said on the A News podcast recently that there are many anarchists now who experience their whole lives as anarchists online, not in face-to-face contact with other anarchists.

I’ve written a good deal about both the positive organisational opportunities created by social networking.

This results in fracturing movements even resulting in people unable to be physically in the same space as each other, never mind work together in a sustainable way.
