= example of the network form of Phyles, i.e. communities that form businesses and cooperatives to maintain themselves. Neo-Venetianist networks are non-local cooperatives.
David de Ugarte:
"Born in the blogosphere, they are heirs to the hacker work ethic, and move in the conceptual world, which tends to the economic democracy which we spoke about in the first part of this book.
Unlike traditional cooperativism, as they do not spring from real proximity-based communities, their local ties do not generate identity. In the Indianos' foundation, for instance, there are residents in two countries and three autonomous regions, who started out with two companies founded hundreds of kilometres away from each other."
