Listening to the history of the @LEGO_Group brand. Big love :) Just putting this here, since I'll be talking @greenpeace soon! How LEGO got awesome to t.co/hlHnFtTq7E

"Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather."

— J. P. Barlow, "A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace"

Later today: I will ramble about stuff I believe in as a keynote at in Sweden. Talking , @WeAreOpenCoop @greenpeace and @opensourceway. I might accidentally say the word "-capitalism" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

When people brag about their number of followers in their bios, I vomit in my mouth a bit.

Who knows a good front end dev? How is it possible that we are having a hard time filling a for @greenpeace international 1st project? Peeps - please share: workfor.greenpeace.org/vacanci

@Gargron Money rules the world. Money is power. Capitalism has clear favourites. The risk is not just to the individual, manipulation of finances can tilt entire economic systems. See 2008. See recent elections and the role of financing. The will of the people can move mountains, if that will is heard. Enabling through technology isn't the magic bullet, but I don't believe it is inherently any more risky than the way analog systems work.

Yeah, and this argument can be made about all kinds of things. Paper money under the mattress versus a bank account for example. I'm thinking that given the move towards digitally equipped societies, our accessibility to civic participation seems just as important as our ability to [insert other life admin examples].
