“Mark Zuckerberg’s manifesto outlines his vision for a centralised global colony ruled by the Silicon Valley oligarchy. I say we must do the exact opposite and create a world with individual sovereignty and a healthy commons.”

Agreed. When Zuck’s Satellite exploded on the launchpad… which would have created a Facebook-controlled “so-called internet” (really an intRAnet similar to the bad-old-days of AOL where you could only surf sponsored content), for poor people in remote areas with no other option… I cheered like the Death Star exploded, although I felt bad for SpaceX. -PC


###The malady of the human spirit has an INC directing it:

“A healthy society needs these communities to support our personal, emotional and spiritual needs. In a world where this physical social infrastructure has been declining, we have a real opportunity to help strengthen these communities and the social fabric of our society.”

After reading zuck’s manifesto I’m going for a long walk.

“Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
What did you dream? It’s all right we told you what to dream.”
