Elevate Democracy Talks I
I especially liked the talk of Sascha Meinrath (on top left) about the mesh networks.
The fast evolution and scale of these nets around the globe for me clearly indicates the need of public owned communication infrastructure. The fact of almost not existing marginal costs for mass production made software the first candidate to show how convincing it is to solve a problem and give the solution to the masses.
Free networks are cheaper for the communities and as beeing decentralized they might even by more more fail-proof to total net blackouts. They are simply self organized (mesh and communities), so the quality varigates alot for sure , the more people care the better it gets.
The nice common pattern might brings us a new virtual land; but will we be able to liberate hardware and infrastructure too ?
Cynthia McKinney (on top right) gave one of her breathtaking talks about the current situation of the United States.
She addresses the administration with election fraud, asks questions about the war and the state of civil rights.
Both are patriotic americans and yet question the politics of their administration,
interesting to see from an european point of view.
