everything’s being

fisherpeople
What if the U.S.
SBA connected
SB people locally

Re-imagine
Gov as a
platform for
Connecting
People
THIS IS NOT WHAT
THE MAYOR OF
BARCELONA WAS
TALKING ABOUT
P2P =
infinite
scale &
potential
P2P =
gov’t
saving $$$
de Tocqueville:
"In democratic countries,
the knowledge of how to
combine is the mother of
all other forms of
knowledge"
@heif:
"in the 21st century, the
technology for how to
combine is the mother of all
awesomeness"
WHAT’S GOING ON HERE:
Organizing the World’s Info
isn’t the only important
mission
Information isn’t everything
Transparency isn’t enough
INFORMATION
NEEDS
ACTION
YOUR RIGHTS TO FREE
SPEECH & INFORMATION
AREN’T YOUR ONLY
POWERFUL
HUMAN RIGHTS!
Everyone has the right to
freedom of peaceful assembly
and to
freedom of association at all levels
Charter of Fundamental ...
The World’s People,
Self-Organized
MEME
we have more power
than ever to unleash
collaboration &
collective action
organizing
isn't just to act
against
"participation
means lending
your hands, not
just your voices"
GOT
FANS &
FOLLOWERS?
FANS &
FOLLOWERS
ARE WASTED
GET THEM
TO SELF-
ORGANIZE
MOBILIZE
THEM
MOBILIZE
THEM TO
HELP
THEMSELVES
GIVE THEM
PERMISSION
TO KICK ASS
DISTRIBUTE
RESPONSIBILITY
NOT JUST INFO
OR TASKS

your town?
