[Three years ago today I posted A Labor Day Manifesto for a New World . In classic Hagelian fashion it was long and complicated. With the help of a few edge collaborators (CHristopher Gong, Sarah Scharf and John Seely Brown), we've managed to simplify the Manifesto into some powerful imperatives that can and should guide our daily lives.

*One might have predicted a few of these. http://www.manifestar.info/ The AR Art Manifesto “All that is Visible must grow beyond itself and extend into the Realm of the Invisible” (Tron, 1982) Augmented Reality (AR) creates Coexistent Spacial Realities, in which Anything is possible – Anywhere!
This is the original announcement of the GNU Project, posted by Richard Stallman on September 27, 1983. The actual history of the GNU Project differs in many ways from this initial plan. For example, the beginning was delayed until January 1984.
Edit: I've decided to release this post under a CC Attributed license. Share it, copy it, edit it, whatever you feel like, just attribute it back to me. The Hardware Hacker Manifesto by Cody Brocious is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License . This post is a long time in coming. For years we've been seeing an active fight against the right to utilize hardware the way the owner wishes to use it, but it wasn't until this week that it got personal, driving me to write this. Please, share this far and wide; hardware hacking is essential and we're losing ground to those who would love to see it done away with.
Coloniser l'internet ? Civiliser "la toile" ? À l'heure des grand-messes ronflantes sur l'internet qu'il faut dompter, Yann Leroux rappelle ce qu'est internet, ce qu'il doit rester et ce qu'il faut défendre.
SEEKS Project Manifesto Emmanuel Benazera Sylvio Drouin Version 1.0 October 10th, 2006 Scope : This document exposes the main rationale behind the Seeks project, an open-source pattern matching peer-to-peer overlay network for social web search. The authors hope is that by A) exposing their views and concerns to the community, about the current state of web search technologies in relation to the accuracy, privacy and origin of information; B) introducing novel web search models and algorithms; and C) presenting new solutions to the problem of the corporation's unfair advantage over individual users when deploying content on the world wide web; the free software movement will play a crucial role in the future of web search through models and principles such as those defended by the Seeks project.
Become your own revolution. Your creativity is your birthright. When people try to chase or laugh or stamp it out of you, smile and ignore.
by Kirstin Butler How a numbered list can start a personal revolution. Some days everyone needs a little extra encouragement.
For decades, Americans believed that we had the world’s healthiest and safest . We worried little about this diet’s effect on the environment or on the lives of the animals (or even the workers) it relies upon. Nor did we worry about its ability to endure — that is, its sustainability. That didn’t mean all was well. And we’ve come to recognize that our diet is unhealthful and unsafe. Many food production workers labor in difficult, even deplorable, conditions, and animals are produced as if they were widgets.
It's interesting that those in the social media industry believe everything that's occurring with respect to social media is new. As I look back to direct marketing, database marketing, networking and advertising — I don't believe our goals for businesses were different at all. There are a lot of doom and gloom stories about how every business must adapt or they're going to fail.
