Law, Norms, Market, Architecture

Here's just a thought.

The left is based on an illustration from Larry Lessig's Code, as many of you can imagine. I just rotated it CCW 90 degrees.

The right is my view of same 4 regulators in computer networked society. In the networked society, technological architecture totally surround an individual and he/she can only be able to communicate to others through the architecture. In that situation even the reach of law, norms, and market to the individual come only through the architecture.
