We have a very serous problem at the moment in progressive technology

 

Geek culture has always had a strong ant-progressive side to it and this in now dominant – it manifests as naivety about politics and over- complexity in open solutions.

NGO culture is based on a anti-commons, a dog eats dog fight for survival based on short term funding criteria.

Traditional left political party’s and unions are stuck on the defensive, and when they do step over the trenches to attack they take up NGO or geek prioritises.

Technology has a HUGE potential to shape our futures in progressive ways, BUT it also has a dark side to repress our futures and it is this dark side unchallenged that we are moving to.

If you wont to help in using technology for positive social change then have a look at this project – all areas of skill are needed.
