Massive attack

with one comment

Ethan Zuckerman reports from the Sunlight/Berkman conference on ‘Ten Democracy Projects in Seventy Minutes‘.

I see three themes there (my analysis): radical transparency, community empowerment, and massive participation.

Radical transparency: you should have access to any knowledge that affects your life. Governments and corporations should be fully exposed.

Community empowerment: communities need the access to technological means to organize and mobilize themselves.

Massive participation: social technology can allow the wide masses to collaboratively shape the democratic process.

Did any one say cluetrain?
