De Landa discusses New York City and it’s efforts to become a rhizome. He insists that the disappearance of industry from New York in the 1940s created a crisis which is not yet resolved. He revisits the topic of open source systems, comparing Linux with Microsoft’s operating system. De Landa also reiterates his argument regarding economies of scale, explaining how smaller entities, such as towns, act as accelerators of historical time due to their flexible organization.
