: The web is adaptive, yes, which is why it is so cherished by capitalists. It is also vulnerable because it is an open field (I'm referencing the "decency" crackdowns of late.) But I'm curious about how the myth (i.e. myth as magical form, not as inaccuracy) of "openness" on the Web disguises its limitations, or its programmed fixity.
