 Gilles Deleuze / Félix Guattari _Rhizome_
Let us summarize the principal characteristics of a rhizome: unlike trees or their roots, the rhizome connects any point to any other point, and its traits are not necessarily linked to traits of the same nature; it brings into play very different regimes of signs, and even nonsign states.
Unlike the tree, the rhizome is not the object of reproduction: neither external reproduction as image-tree nor internal reproduction as tree-structure.
What is at question in the rhizome is a relation to sexuality—but also to the animal, the vegetal, the world, politics, the book, things natural and artificial—that is totally different from the arborescent relation: all manner of “becomings.

With the emergence of the rhizome, that trunk is spilt into a multitude of pieces, allowing the public to form their own structures of thought from the pieces they acquire.
The fifth characteristic of the rhizome is that of cartography.
The rhizome is not an object of reproduction in the sense that it does not repeat itself, Deleuze and Guattari explain, and as such, is “a map and not a tracing” (“Plateau” 12).

 Deleuze & Guattari on the Rhizome
Puppet strings, as a rhizome or multiplicity, are tied not to the supposed will of an artist or puppeteer but to a multiplicity of nerve fibers, which form another puppet in other dimensions connected to the first: "Call the strings or rods that move the puppet the weave.
It forms a rhizome with the world, there is an aparallel evolution of the book and the world; the book assures the deterritorialization of the world, but the world effects a reterritorialization of the book, which in turn deterritorializes itself in the world (if its capable, if it can).
Perhaps one of the most important characteristics of the rhizome is that it always has multiple entryways; in this sense, the burrow is an animal rhizome, and sometimes maintains a clear distinction between the line of flight as passageway and storage or living strata (cf.

 A Theory of Power, Jeff Vail's Critique of Hierarchy & Empire
Rhizome structures, swarming media and asymmetric politics will not be a means to support or improve a centralized, hierarchal democracy—they will be an alternative to it.
Rhizome tactics such as swarming have been used successfully at the 1999 WTO protests in Seattle, and less successfully by protesters at the Republican National Convention in 2004 (link).
Rhizome tactics have found notable success in economics as well, with rural communities using localization policies, increasing distributed power generation, the spread of farmers’ markets and an increased focus on “slow food” and regional cuisine.

The rhizome likewise resists structures of domination, such as the notion of “the mother tongue” in linguistics, though it does admit to ongoing cycles of what Deleuze refers to as “deterritorializing” and “reterritorializing” moments.
As such, “Rhizome” rapidly seeks to extinguish every last trace of Hegelianism, particularly from the object of the book: “There is no longer a tripartite division between a field of reality (the world) and a field of representation (the book) and a field of subjectivity (the author).
That the text is titled Rhizome does not amount to a statement of topic (for the essay refuses objects and signifieds) but rather a statement of identity.

 Smith College Libraries: Fresh Art, Fresh Texts & more at Rhizome!
Rhizome’s website provides access to a growing archive of works by new media artists ("Fresh Art"), an archive of texts by Rhizome members (artists and theorists) dating from its 1996 beginnings to the present ("Fresh Texts"), and a calendar of new media art events and announcements ("Net Art News”and "Rhizome Digest").
Rhizome is one of several on-line entities, such as The Thing and Nettime, which emerged in the mid-1990s as discussion forums and exhibition venues for artists and cultural theorists who were critically and experimentally engaging new media technologies and Internet culture.
Rhizome's historical influence can be explored in its archives through a range of messages posted by artists and theorists of new media including reviews, proposals, announcements, and essays later destined for print publication.

The third principle of the rhizome, which follows the above principles that any point may be connected to any other point in the rhizome and that there be no hierarchy within for a system for it to be rhizomatic, is the principle of multiplicity.
The fifth principle of a rhizome is that it is "not amenable to any structural or generative model." The example of CompuServe's attempt to regulate user access to specific news groups is an example of how the Internet is a model of this principle.
The last principle of the rhizome as put forth by Deleuze and Guattari is that the rhizome is "a map and not a tracing", and that this map has "multiple entryways." (DELEUZE and GUATTARI, 12) It has been mentioned earlier that there are many routes, or links, amongst computers on the Internet.

Rhizome requires Python 2.2 or later (2.4 recommended) and the 4Suite XML and RDF libraries (at http://4Suite.org, version 1.0a1 or later).
Rhizome creates a default administrator super-user that has full access to the system, and its login name and password both default to 'admin'.
This is particularly important with Rhizome because most of its structure and behavior is editable by users; indeed if the Python content processor is enabled (is disabled by default) the user can execute arbitrary Python code.

The key point, I think, is that the pattern of organization that we’ve identified as tribal; or as rhizome; or as anarchy (I’ll now use those terms interchangeably) is the mode of behavior which comes most naturally to the human species.
Rhizome anarchy is in fact the natural way humans organize themselves to live their lives and provide themselves with the things they need—and you’ll find that even in contemporary society, those resources which are not “under lock and key” are all acquired tribally.
It might also be what Jeff Vail calls "rhizome." The Tribe of Anthropik has decided to take this concept from the realm of theory, into action.

 Deleuze and Guattari - The Concept of the Rhizome
The concept of the Rhizome as developed by Deleuze and Guattari in A Thousand Plateaus is highly relevant to a discussion of a shifting configuration of media-elements; a conflation of language systems.
The rhizome is reducible to neither the One or the multiple.
Unlike a structure, which is defined by a set of points and positions, the rhizome is made only of lines; lines of segmentarity and stratification as its dimensions, and the line of flight or deterritorialization as the maximum dimension after which the multiplicity undergoes metamorphosis, changes in nature.

The ideas expressed in it are applicable to countless aspects of society and life (and even inorganic structures), such as the rhizome, which desribes a system in which elements interact horizontally, maintaining their heterogeneity (a prime example of this is the internet).

They state that a rhizome is "a map and not a tracing." A tracing is genetic; it evolves and reproduces from earlier forms.
In describing the rhizome as a model for discourse, Deleuze and Guattari invoke the 'principle of asignifying rupture,' a fundamental tendency toward unpredictability and discontinuity."
