The issue isn’t whether networked linkages are as strong as the organizational links within legacy activist movements, but whether networks lower the transaction costs of aggegating weak ties for a common purpose — i.e. whether they make it easier for the strong nodes of the legacy movements to leverage weak ties to those who previously wouldn’t parcipate at all.

Your example of the importance of activists who use anti-circumvention tools under autocratic regimes, in a larger activist network, was a good one.

I suspect similarly that for each person who actively uses circumnvention tools in the entertainment world, there’s a larger network of friends who get their music emailed as attachments, or burnt onto CDs and transmitted by sneakerware.

The heart of stigmergic organization (as KK pointed out re Wikipedia) is the elimination of entry barriers against leveraging small contributions.
