At the Personal Democracy Forum

Adam and I are at the Personal Democracy forum, which is a fancy-pants convention (700$ entry free) about the intersection between politics and tecnology.(I hooked us up with a volunteer scholarship)

There have been many interesting speakers and so forth: I’ll try to pass on whatever cool info I learn.

Cool things so far – I’m sitting right next to Ben Smith right now. Adam checked in Matt Stoller. I found Lawrence Lessig!

Wisdom : “Imagine a world where Linux Torvalds had to lobby Microsoft for a better/open operating system. Imagine a world where Jimbo Wales had to se protests outside brittanica headquarters, demanding they free up their information. Community activists can take things into their own hands”
