This chapter expounds on intensification by focusing on the importance of the outsides of networks, and offers a conclusion that provides additional thoughts about the unmapping of networked participation. Digital networks and the network episteme have already transformed who we are and how we interact with each other. The more realistic strategies for unthinking and unmapping networks will rely not on abandoning them in a technophobic reaction; they will rely on the intensification of the network, engaging in creative acts of disassembly by pushing the limits of its logic, and conceptualizing alternative modes of being through the paranodal.

Keywords:   intensification, network outsides, networked participation unmapping, digital networks, network episteme, technophobic reaction, paranodal
