Organised networks are an alternative to the social media logic of weak links and their secretive economy of data mining. They put an end to freestyle friends, seeking forms of empowerment beyond the brief moment of joyful networking. This speculative manual calls for nothing less than social technologies based on enduring time. Analysing contemporary practices of organisation through networks as new institutional forms, organised networks provide an alternative to political parties, trade unions, NGOs, and traditional social movements.
