Architecture and the Internet

I was struck by slide 27 of Tom's digital utopias presentation by the similarity between the organic, non-hierarchical, architecture of the web and the organic plan of New Earswick.



The link is directly through humanist inspired architecture and especially the work of Christopher Alexander - an architect and writer whose works were influential in the development of computer architectures and programming languages in the 1960s and 1970s. Without him perhaps there would be no wikis - so wikipedia seems like the most appropriate source here:
