The Tyranny of Structurelessness

I stumbled across this article years ago, and then lost track of where I had found it. I just rediscovered the original on the author’s website

It’s written about the Women’s Liberation Movement of the sixties (something about which I am not completely unaware, having been in a former life married to one of the founders of the local Women’s Liberation Organization in New Haven, Connecticut, a role referenced in the article), but it is a generalizable and brilliant analysis.

Try reading it while mentally substituting IIW/Identity Commons/Data Portability/etc for the women’s groups the author discusses.
